Putnam County Man Admits to Spray Painting Squirrels


A Putnam County man has admitted to trapping and spray painting squirrels.

DEC officers arrested 62-year-old Mark Kuhn after they claimed he was trapping and painting the squirrels before releasing them in a nearby park.

Officers say Kuhn trapped the squirrels and spray painted them with apple-red colored “Rust-Oleum Paint + Primer” to “keep track of those returning to his yard and causing his dog to bark.”
