That's how I read it. Unless its a nuisance animal no. If its a nuisance then it must be released out side the city. Call your local AGF folk's.  I'm sure they could set us straight.

I thank we do know. It says that only fur bearers and nuisance animals may be trapped.  If they are getting into ones pecans then it a nuisance.  Just going out in the woods and setting a trap for one would be unlawful.  Squirrels are game animal not a fur bearer...
so I would thank no would be your answer

if your inside the city limits you can check with the mayors office.
cities have different laws than game and fish, but both try to work together.
I trap and eat squirrels every year and when I take them out of a trap I will skin them on the line and use the scrap for a bait site.
everyone needs to check on things for them selves and get any changes in writing.

No "recreational" squirrel trapping season.  Like was said, if they're causing property damage they could be trapped.
