Let me tell you a tale that's a teachable moment about leaving aging fruit in your yard. A Midwestern lady was surprised to see a little squirrel had discovered her pears. One problem though. The pears had fermented and the young squirrel was about to go on a very long joy ride that was all captured by a camera on her feeder.
Squirrels will eat everything and anything they can get their hand/paws on. Don't believe me? A driver just dropped video of one of these critters completely scarfing a whole slice of pizza by himself on a nearby roof.
It's not exactly breaking news that it takes some ingenuity to be a NASA engineer. What do you do with all that brain power when you're retired? You create an Olympic course in your backyard so squirrels can compete for nuts. That's what you do.
Everyone deserves some perks and that includes squirrels apparently. I say that because there's a squirrel in the Midwest who was sadly orphaned that now has demands. Video proves that means getting scratched by his/her human.
Work has enough challenges of its own without having a feral squirrel causing you problems. That's what one Midwest woman learned as she was stuck at work because one little guy wasn't letting her get to her car.
