It was a hot point of controversy in Orleans County last year and it's coming back next month.

The eight annual Holley Squirrel Slam will be held February 22. Hunters as young as 12 can sign up to shoot and kill squirrels.

Animal lovers call the event cruel. Last year, more than a 1,000 hunters took place.

The event is sponsored by the Holley Fire Department and the money raised supports the town's volunteer fire operations.
