Damage to sheetrock and a squirrel nest in the wall near a gable vent in the attic of a house in Dawsonville Georgia

Squirrel damage in an attic in Dawsonville

To a human, it's hard to understand what this squirrel was trying to accomplish. The nest in the wall is obvious, but why gnaw those huge holes through the Sheetrock? It makes no sense.

What you have to remember is that the squirrel who did this damage in the attic of a house in Dawsonville, Georgia -- like all squirrels -- was not what one would call a deep thinker. Squirrels are animals driven mainly by instinct, and their instinct is to gnaw. Having an extra hole or two to get into or out of their lair could save their lives if predators were to come looking for a meal, so gnawing holes is an ingrained survival skill for a squirrel.
