Pest control put a live trap on the roof to capture the squirrels. They shouldn't die since the cage can provide for the squirrel until its released into the wild, but the squirrel is such a high stress creature that he starts bashing his head into the cage trying to get out and ultimately dies from the trauma. If only he could chill and be patient for a minute despite how scary it may seem. I guess a squirrel can't understand such a complex thing as hope and patience. But people can. I will think of him the next time I find myself in just such a cage myself.
