How many people have died while climbing mt hood?
I read the question and dont know the answer, but since ive gotton this far, so I might as well just say, I have never heard of what your talking about,and have never gotton sick or squirrly, from eating the little critters, so I would say get after em ! I dont like em much and dont like hardly anything wild meat, except tenderloin of a deer. Seems you have to use all kinds of things to kill the wild taste. Probably why you dont see wild meat in stores. Bar B Q them with sauce on a grill. Its probably the vineger that kills the taste like pork fat in deer sausage. Clean them good , ...scrape and then naw.

The parasites are called warbles. The get to be about the size of a pencil eraser and you can see the "sore" moving in and out. It's always best to wait to go squirrell hunting until after the first frost of the season. Cold weather kills the warbles. My grandparents always told me not to eat a squirrell that had warbles so I never have.

A lot of wild game potentially could have parasites, but so can domestic animals.
So, I wouldn't worry about eating squirrels if you like them, assuming you cook them well and they look in good shape- I doubt you'd be eating any mangy diseased looking ones, anyway.
Yeah thats a good point about waiting until after the first frost. We used to hunt rabbits and would wait til after a freeze
