The Fine Line Between Research and Prank:
"Flyger devoted himself to studying squirrels because, as he explains it, they weigh less than a deer and don't bite like a polar bear. He used to smear a tree behind his Silver Spring home with a mixture of peanut butter and Valium and then tattoo the squirrels that he found passed out below."

      Depending on how hungry they are, they'll sometimes let you tattoo them for just peanut butter..

      and ritz crackers go a long way, cheaper than valium too.
