For years, we believed, along with others, that not only is Australia a skwerl-safe zone, but skwerl-free as well. However, past history and recent events have proved us sadly wrong. Consider the following...
1) It is true that there are no chitterboxes native to Australia. However, in the late 1800's those strange devotees to skwerlhuggery, the Victorians, brought skwerls to its shores. Grey squirrels were introduced around 1880. Fortunately, that skwerlball didn't fair well, and their colonies supposedly died out. The Indian Palm Squirrel was introduced around 1898 and is supposedly confined to zoos.
2) Skwerlhuggers maintained a website devoted to bringing the slavering nutmunchers down under, Squirrels for Australia. We kept close tabs on these traitors over the years. The original website shut down and was replaced with a Facebook page (see link below).
3) Our own communications with the Australian government led us to believe that the nation was skwerl-free, although the official we corresponded with conceded "their might be a few in captivity in zoos." As you will learn, this was a cover-up for a conspiracy that threatens a continent...
SQUIRREL FOUND IN FORRESTDALE
Residents in South Perth and Como have been asked to keep a look out for Indian Palm squirrels, after an animal was found at Carey Baptist College in the south-eastern suburb of Forrestdale.
Indian Palm squirrels have colonised an area of about 30 square kilometres around the Perth Zoo in South Perth, after they were released in the grounds 102 years ago.
Agriculture Western Australia protection officer Brian Clare said "They... scavenge for waste food and have been known to steal school childrens’ sandwiches."
All squirrel sightings should be reported to Agriculture Western Australia’s Forrestfield office by telephoning 9366 2300.

Patriots, how long did the bushytail horde think it could keep this dark conspiracy hidden. Did they think governmental misinformation and relocating their deviant Squirrels for Australia website would prevent us from learning the truth: Australia is on the brink of a continent-wide skwerlological disaster.
Make no mistake, if the drooling nutzys succeed with their plan, they will march out of Perth and across the nation destroying everything in their path, including native wildlife such as these:
L-R: Bandicoot; Brushtailed Phascogale; Common Ringtail; Greater Glider; Kowari
Patrol all areas with German Shepards, trained to eat skwerls.
dISGUISE rockets to Mars as PALM TREES - problem solved
DONT YOU DARE I LOVE AUSTRALIA AND ITS SKWERLS
To save more water and animals get rid of crocs
SAVE ALL THE AMINAL IN AUSTARILA
Saw a squirrel today roaming the grounds at Perth Zoo. He took off shortly after the 9 yr old giggled so loudly she freaked it out and it disappeared into the Tiger enclosure.
skwerls make a damn good stew, mate
Try and develope a 'squirrel bait', used like snail bail would. Only, without the buring and disolving. A non-destructive solution would be good. Nothing like bombs or fires, like tasmania has been doing to rid the rabbits. or foxes. one of the two. I wouldn't know. I'm Californian.
i think we could help teri in her fight in loosing her husbend and help her care for the animals of austraila zoo so lets raise some money for her and the animals
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND HELPING THE ANIMALS I AM GRAT FULL THANX AGE 11
Stop the people from cutting down the trees. Save the forests and the animals that go along with them. Save the Animals!
Yeah there was a similar problem with the introduced Indian Myna birds spreading rapidly and displacing native avian species. The Indian Mynas are intelligent birds, and they evict native birds from nesting-holes, and fill up unused nesting-holes with garbage to prevent native birds from moving back in there. Cane toads have posed a similar dire threat to native wildlife, except that the cane toads are slow-moving and not quick-witted and smart like the mynas.
THE SKWERL'S GOT MY BABY!! Two words: Emu Fodder.
Everyone in most other countries and continents likes squirrels. Why not have Oz import a few? it's not like cane toads or rabbits..
We'all find out here in the Unated States that they taste good on the grill after you've given a good flatenning with the Chevy
squirrels are nice. squirrels are good. Accept your fate. Try to act with dignity. Without squirrels you isolate yourselves from the real world. The English have always had squirrels, and see how the Australian culture and history has grown since the English arrived! Time to intergrate yourselves into the civilised world!!!!!!
Send in squirrel eating squirrels

Get them to drink VB. That'll kill anything!
i think they are cute why get ride of them...i dont see the harm that they stay...they didn't do anything to you.
I BELIEVE THAT AUSTRALIA CAN BE SAVED IF ITS PEOPLE WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO PROTECT AND CONSERVE THEIR RESOURCES.PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUTRIES CAN ONLY SUPPORT THEM AND WELL, THEY CAN LEND A BIG HAND. THE MOTIVATION AND THE EAGERNESS MUST COME FROM THE AUSTRALIANS THEMSELVES.
By moving out of Australia!
Challenge them to a dual, then, when they least expect it, sit on their big bushy tails and tickle their tummies until they cry out uncle!
put up gaurds to keep yhe bad people out.Sothat way the good people will stay in and the bad people will stay out.

I love to know about australia becouse my boyfriend he is from australia
looooooooooooooooooooooool Greetings from end of the world where no licht is comming muhahahahah
abandon all hope; it's lost forever
I love squirrels just as much as the people who work to help save their population. All I can say is there must be some agreement to help solve this ongoing problem. Capture them and free them else where, breed them and try your best to make good decisions.
Certain people have such cruel minds when it comes to squirrels, not only bulldozing their land and habitats for other uses, but also, the common smart remarks that others sent by sending unecessary comments to this site. I can't put my finger on it, but to saev Australia and a lot of nature's homeland, people would have to sacrifice a little or make certain land a part for visiting sights/zoos. Or else there'd have to be some other negotiable agreement.
We actually should be saving the squirrels. So get to it.
I like very much the animals....but now i don't know how cen we save Australia ....but i know yhat is a very beautiful ,,continet" (se intelege i'm from Romania) ...
save australia from what... possums? omg

this is a stupid website..its crazy
we can save australia by collecting fund from all over the world and by making a save place for australian wildlife who are endangered of extint.
Okay, let's take Australia... and move it somewhere else!
new saying, ' a fool stands behind a palm tree'
dont cut down trees and paint houses green
I think we can save Australia by putting gates up or something so the Animals dont get out and go on the roads but they can still have alot of room to run around and stuff. We can also help by making... well I dont know if it is already a law but make on so you cant hurt the animals or you cant get near them.
i dont know but somebody made a web site about squirrels so anything's possible right? lol
I love you very much AUSTRALIA, and i hope can save Australia's fauna and flora! ~veronica petrescu, romania
you could do those thongs, but all it would ultimatly do is make them extinct! and you would have to finde something else to kill what you got to get rid of the skwerls! i say make a skwerl hunting seson in austraia. kind of like deer seson in the USA! i think its a good idea!!
by not cutting down animals habitats
There are many remebrandts in this world, but I will not suggest burning them on that scale. A kid has his sandwoch stolen, thus you suggest to kill them off, promote captive breeding and release programs for the above animals or take some means of active conservation that does not involve a shotgun. P.S. so what if they scavenge for waste food, its not like its your main food source.
get everyone to sighn a petition.
Drink them to death with Fosters Beer
The way we can save Australia is by setting up conservations for animals.The human population ai taking control, so we need to figure out a way to let nature share mother earth with us.
Send a horde of skwerl eating weasel's wearing deep fried gorilla panties to sit on them!
Breed Snakes that are genetically engineered to have a "Taste for Skwerl"
drop coke bottles on them
old saying, "only a fool sits under a palm tree"
nerve gas, atomic bombs, rioting, assassinations, use skwerls instead of turkeys for Thanksgiving and chemical warfare
lure them into the tiger cage
