No reason in principle why Bristol should not develop a local, sustainable market in grey squirrel meat (unless you donít eat meat on principle of course). They are a renewable resource if properly and sensitively managed so that the use rate is less than the replenishment rate - and there are restaurants who would serve them (see here). The practicalities would have to be got right in that: we'd need to know that the quality of the meat was good; 'harvesting' them should be humane and licensed; and should be done on the basis of the best information on numbers and reproduction rate of squirrels (consuming them at too fast a rate means running out of the local supply).
