Grey squirrels could be put on the pill in a bid to prevent them from threatening red squirrels on the Welsh island of Anglesey.

Reds are thriving on the island after the greys were culled in a conservation programme launched 11 years ago, reports the Daily Post.

But greys in forests on the mainland are now using the Menai and Britannia bridges to cross the water and reinvade the island.

Now conservation group Friends of Anglesey Red Squirrels has volunteered to trial a contraceptive drug to be placed in bait.

Spokesman Dr Craig Shuttleworth said: "Despite having the barrier of the Menai Strait, some grey squirrels are still making it across the bridges.

"Short of having guards there 24 hours a day there is not a lot we can do about it.

"Culling has been successful on the Anglesey side but there is less enthusiasm for that on the Gwynedd side, where there are large numbers of greys in forests near the Strait.

"If we can prevent the squirrels breeding there then this would be a good long-term solution for reducing numbers and be more publicly acceptable than culling."

The technique involves treating squirrels with a drug, fed to them through bait, that would trigger the females' immune systems to reject the males' sperm.

Agreed!

Yes...like the Eurpoeans, the gray squirrel invaded the US and our cute fluffy reds and natives are all murdered and starved out by the gray bastards!

Put em on the pill? It'll never work! I used to shoot dozens and dozens (when I used to murder). They just kept coming...10 a day every day. It seems their territories would expand. There's no use...we're doomed!

Run awayyyyyyyy run awayyyyyy! (oh that was the killer rabbit)
