I have heard people say that city squirrel is gross and bad for you. Do you guys eat squirrel from cities?

Hadn't eaten one in years. Can only eat it in dumplings...

The squirrels in my neighborhood still eat nuts, and an occasional wire..I assume they're good.

Not sure poor and hungry comes into play, squirrel is damn fine eating. Squirrels in town live off of pecan tree's and bird feeders, I'd say as good or better than a country squirrel. Ones around the old house were fat as tick's. Now shooting squirrels inside the city limit's may be a whole different story. Then again that subject usually turns into a thread of it's own.

At the old house in town it's against the law, no shooting of firearms or air rifles inside the city limits.

My Grandpa used to sit on the back porch and shoot them with a home made slingshot. He was deadly with that thing.Shot lead balls at them.

The reason I was given to not eat city squirrels was that they chew on the lead flashings around vent pipes. I know they do because I remember seeing the teeth marks on them growing up. I have always enjoyed hunting and eating squirrels, but admit I pass on the city ones.

^^^^I spent decades in the roofing biz and and city squirrels definitely eat lots of lead from the roofs. I love eating squirrel but would never eat a city squirrel.
