|About a week after the pumpkin incident, my husband encountered this|
when he opened the front door to take the kids to school
In case you can't tell, that's a squirrel with a peanut butter jar. Yep, the darn critter took it out of our curbside recycling bin. I'm guessing it must've been put in there sans lid (either that or the little guy has learned how to unscrew lids--which I wouldn't put past him, btw).
Now picture it--hubby and kids climb in the car, ready to leave. You'd think the squirrel would abandon his jar of sweet gold and take off, right? Nope, not this critter. HE TOOK THE JAR WITH HIM AND CLIMBED A NEARBY TREE WITH IT! It was the craziest thing I'd ever seen, and I'm kicking myself for not getting it on video.
I'm not sure what to expect next, but I'm guessing I haven't seen the last of these daredevil squirrels. ;)
