WTF Squirrel KO's 04 Tacoma!

Hello all! I woke up yesterday morning without a care in the world! I went out to start my taco, I turned it over and instead of it firing right up it just kept turning over! Now I thought this was very odd because usually it fires right up! My mind started racing! I thought damn someone is messing with my truck! You know the usual paranonia. So I popped the hood. and almost shat myself when a very frisky Eastern Fox Squirrel sprung three feet into the air and hi tailed it! Needless to say he KO'd my tacoma by taking out the wiring harness that is located on the drivers side all the way up on the firewall! I could not believe my eyes! He had chewed through almost all of the wires!

So today my beloved sits at the dealer waiting to see how much damage this little rodent caused! Thank gawd for insurance!

No animals were harmed during the making of this post!

But I think some black ops are in order!

do what I do. toss some corn in a nice area of the yard and keep an eye on it with a bow or pellet gun.


Or mix cyanide into the corn

I suggest a squirrel IED, disguised as a corncob.

Squirrels are nasty little bastards. Out here in Cali they get HUGE because they don't hibernate. They are also not scared of people for some reason. We had one chew through the Christmas lights this year. I have no clue how it didn't get electrocuted. I actually nailed one with a big rock awhile back. Didn't even flinch. Just ran away. One got hit by a car in the summer and was in the back yard making all kinds of noise. I thought about going out there with my handy machete but luckily the neighbor's cat got it first. I was worried the neighbors might have freaked out had they seen me.

I was in such shock that I forgot the pics and got my truck to the dealer asap! I'll just tape a packet of cumadin to the nesty spot! I'm still waiting for the dealer to call me back and tell me what the damages are!
