The world continues to be astonished that pest animals will find and run off with the food we throw away.
Fresh from the whole #PizzaRat thing, we’ve got another New York rodent, this time a squirrel, jumping into a trash can and grabbing a half-finished milkshake. It’s quite efficient about it, removing the straw before climbing out of the trashcan, carrying the cup over a fence and removing the lid.
I’m not particularly surprised – my college campus was overrun with squirrels and I regularly saw them climbing up trees with entire bagels, or scaling 12-story buildings to chew through window screens and raid people’s trashcans. They’re agile little bastards.
