Eating local - squirrel

I know the squirrels at my parents' house are well fed on hazelnuts stolen from their hazelnut trees, so I'd sooner eat a city squirrel than a garbage-eating city pigeon. I once met a guy from Alabama who claimed to have eaten squirrel plenty of times - "you just fry 'em up, they're tasty!" but have not tried it myself.

Where do squirrels land on your spectrum of what is fit to eat?
