End of the squirrel saga - hopefully

I checked the squirrel trap Saturday, and it had finally done its job. I called animal control that evening, after taking the trap out of the garage attic, and said they could come get it, complete with squirrel.

Unfortunately, the animal control officer doesn't work weekends or holidays. He came and got it this morning - by which time the little guy had died. He was active yesterday morning when we went out for groceries. I'm sure he got dehydrated; I just couldn't think of a way to get him water while in the trap, and wasn't about to let him out of it.

The garage is, hopefully, squirrel-proofed now. We put hardware cloth over every opening we could find. I don't want to do that to another squirrel.
