I don't know where you live, but if it's winter there and the ground is or
will be covered in snow, the squirrel will either freeze or die of
starvation if you move it to some forest preserve. It won't have a nest
and it won't have access to any of the food it stored in the fall for the
winter. Shooting it may be more humane!
Get a pot that says "Squirrel Stew" on the side and put it in the attic
along with a wild game recipe book..
Get a stuffed squirrel and hang it in effigy from the eaves,,a sign on
its' neck saying "Saddam" or "Osama" is optional.
Act like You gave up,,invite it down for a beer and when it's drunk and
passing-out show it the nice little couch You built in the cage..It
will wake hungover and 50 miles from home.
step 2 for method 1,2 and 3;
Fix the hole.
Do You live in a Northern State? It might kill the little critter if Ya
lock it out of its' home in the middle of winter,would be more humane
to eat it..Of course if it is what made the hole into Yer house slow
torture to death might just be the ticket!
Years ago My Dad had a city squirrel He could hand feed..My
Brother(also in a city)has 2 squirrels that are very brave,,I named em
Stubby and Football..I put peanuts in the shell out and sat for a
ciggarette,,Stubby came right up to My bare toes,,the thought arose
that a toe looks ALOT like a peanut!! I flinched and Stubby took off
like Rocket J Squirrel!! True story...
Sorry,I do'nt have a real solution for Ya,,hope the comedy helps..
