Asalam alikum brothers and sisters.
I was wishing to know if eating a herbivore animal like a squirrel is haram. It eats nuts, berries, and seeds. I don't think it eats off dead animal carcasses and drinks blood. It has claws to climb trees for escaping predators and digging. Is it haram to eat one if I've hunted it down and slaughtered it halal in the forest camping? If it is what do I do with its body? And if it's the only thing we can find for a meal? What do we do?
Thanks so much happy Ramadan once again.
