    HAZLET, N.J. — The owner of a New Jersey pest control company has been charged with animal cruelty after a squirrel was found dead in a rooftop trap.

    The Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals charged Kathleen Buck, owner of Critter Ridder, on Friday.

    Chief Buddy Amato says a professional complex hired Critter Ridder to help get rid of the squirrel. He says a trap was set Wednesday for the animal, and no one returned to check on it.

    Amato says the squirrel was found "cooked to death on the hot roof" Thursday afternoon

    Four counts of animal cruelty is the least of Ms Buck's problems. On the squirrel grapevine, word's out that something BAAAAD is going to happen...

    Can't comment on this paricular situation but I can tell you that that is the least of their worries. The NJ Fish and Game may get involved. I understand everybody's reaction about squirrels and believe me I understand. But unlike a rat, which is considered a peat, squirrels come under the protection of Fish and Wildlife and there are ways to deal with them.

    That being said, many of these Pest Control companies operate on the fringes with no regard for anything but money. Didn't say how much the company charged them for cooking a squirrel. I can tell from firsthand experience it was probably in the $300 to $700 range. That much to set a $50 trap and leave it.

    IN NJ we take this stuff seroulsly to keep in check companies that rip off the public to miscreants who graduate from torturing animals to serious crimes. To everything there is a reason.

    I'm glad they're being charged with animal cruelty. :mad:

    I don't see ANY animal as a pest any animal that walks on 2 legs OR 4. I'm a major animal lover, and a proud supporter of the ASPCA.
