You can safely delete them. For the future, I'd suggest that you
change the "logfile_rotate" parameter in squid.conf to 1, and set
up a cron job to call "squid -k rotate" (same effect as the "kill"
command above but easier to handle) every night. That way, your
log files will be truncated daily, you'll have the previous day's
logs in the *.0 files to look at, just in case, and all older logs
are automatically deleted.
