Some of the squirrels around here have white liver spots, like little white nodules the size of a pin head. Other's livers look like a flower garden of blotches of colors: yellow, olive, yellow-pink, and the liver is generally off-color, a light brown instead of that deep liver red. There is a canal behind my house. On the other side of the road, on the other half of our property, the squirrels have no stagnant water source, rather, a 1000-acre lake, and healthy livers. I eat those. For some reason, neither group will cross the road to the other territory. Anyway, are the squirrels with the royally screwed up livers safe to eat? I don't want to end up with liver flukes or acarus or trich etc. I was told they were not safe to eat, but that they should be thrown out and my hands, clothes and knives sterilized. However, that source of information has since proved themselves to be questionable at best. Any facts, thoughts, or criticisms?
