Competition One Rules: Grey Squirrel recipe

*** The competition is now over, the winning entry was from Timberwolf, which you can read along with the others in the competition forum. Look out for out next competition in the near future! ***

Hello all,

I am pleased to announce the opening of Wildlife UK's first competition! The competition is simply to come up with the tastiest (sounding!) Grey Squirrel recipe, as voted for by the rest of the forums members.

The rules are as follows:


  1. All entries must be posted in a new thread in this forum by midnight of Monday 24th September 2007
  2. After the dealine, a voting thread will be set up allowing each member one vote for their favourite. All members will be allowed to vote regardless of whether they have entered the competition, but voting for your own entry is not allowed.
  3. The winner is the entry that recieves the most votes in the voting thread.
  4. A maximum of one entry per member is allowed
  5. To recieve the prize the winner is required to provide their address

The winner will recieve a choice between David Attenborough's Life in the Undergrowth DVD or book.

When posting your entry, please make the title of your thread the name of your recipe.

As said before, the competition is looking for the best sounding recipe so you are free to use as much imagination as you like. Icon_biggrin

I look forward to reading all your entries. Please post any questions about the competition in this thread.

Good luck!

I take it no-one likes Grey Squirrels on here then! Like it or not they are part of our UK Wildlife and all animals should be treated the same, even the rabbit which, tho non native and a bit of a pest,are here to stay and help feed the foxes Icon_wink[/align]


Just act naturally and no-one gets hurt!

Yes I like them too, love watching them, I am sure I would like them in a stew too ... rabbit is very tasty!

I believe that some posh establishments serve up grey squirrel as "tree rabbit",

RE: Competition One Rules: Grey Squirrel recipe

im fairly new here and i dint expect to find stuff like this here !!!!

i think anything in such bad taste should be completely deleted from your site.
it wont do you any favours keeping stuff like this.
so if you would like my advice just get rid, dont just lock it.

Come on, we're not promoting the burning of witches, or throwing Christians to the lions, or ethnic cleansing. This was just a fun post trying to find a redeeming feature for creature that is, to put it simply, a scourge in this country.

Comparing them to rabbits is unfair. Rabbits were introduced, by the Normans, for a good reason - food. Albeit food for the upper classes, but at least in this country they do have predators which help to keep the numbers down a little bit, unlike grey squirrels which seem to have none. If you want to liken greys to rabbits, then look towards Australia. I for one will only be happy when the grey is totally eradicated from the UK.

RE: Competition One Rules: Grey Squirrel recipe

Right, I'm going to lock this thread. As you can probably tell from the entries, it was meant as a bit of fun - I don't think anyone here seriously thinks that after reading what are quite obviously joke recipes that someone is going to go out and try and catch a squirrel and eat it.

So in response to Tweetys question "Is this a joke?" - the answer is yes, that's exactly what it is.

On the other hand if it has offended anyone then I do apologise because that was not the intention at all. If anyone wants to discuss it further they can PM me.

Mods, please leave this thread locked.

Thanks,
Alex
