Hmmmm..... I watched and tried something where you slice across the back by tail on top spine? then pull? All I get is rips, shreds etc... LOLSquirrels are the easiest thing to clean. Cut the belly skin away enough to get your hand under the skin and over the back grab the skin and grab the squirrel and pull apart . When we cook them for squirrel pot pie we leave the head on but that grosses some people out so we cut em off. Same way with them Wascally Wabbits.
