My friend Eddie trapped a four inch rodent in his attic. He and I
cannot recognize what kind of rodent it is. I thought at first it was a
mouse or a rat, but its feather-like tail makes me doubt this. Could
you identify it? I took photos of it and posted them on this website:

Maybe a flying squirrel..not sure. What part of the country are you
in.. I can give the link to exterminators in your area to look at it.
I agree that without knowing where you are located it would b
difficult to say what species of squirrel starved to death in you
friend's Havahart trap. You might want to inform your friend that th
trap is designed to live trap and release the 'pest', not let it starv
to death because he went on a trip.
Now that I've ranted, I'd like to warn your friend to have every inc
of electrical wires inspected in the attic. Friends of ours didn't d
this and it took two years for the chewed wires to overheat and bur
the house half down.
