On 17 January, Stockport Magistrates’ Court heard that Mr Worthington, known locally as “the verminator”, trapped the squirrel and shot it twice at point-blank range with a .22.
He assumed it was dead, and went out shopping.
On discovering it was still alive when he returned, he shot it a further three times.
RSPCA officers turned up after a tip-off from a neighbour and took the squirrel, which was still alive but “unresponsive”
now is he a sh!t shot or was that a super squirrel
