Absolutely not! SQUNGEE is designed to be a harmless and entertaining way to feed squirrels. The cable at the bottom of SQUNGEE is fairly rigid so it cannot wrap around a squirrel's body. The spring is encased in a shroud so a squirrel cannot get its toes pinched. And the squirrels must like it - they keep coming back for more. (Maybe like human bungee-jumpers, squirrels are adrenaline addicts!)
Does Squngee really work?
Yes! When the squirrels jump up and grab the corn, they hold on. While they hold on and pull out kernels, their weight and gravity is bouncing them up and down about 12-18 inches while they spin and swing. We have even seen squirrels Squngee upside down!
Can't squirrels chew through the bungee cord of Squngee?
Squngee has NO BUNGEE-CORD in it. In fact, Squngee is made entirely of weather- and squirrel-tooth resistant metal. There is a fabric shroud covering the spring to prevent injuries to your bushy-tailed visitors, but even if they chewed the shroud, your Squngee would work just fine.
Makes a great gift for squirrel lovers, nature lovers and anyone that loves to laugh. Make someone smile today!
