Trashy Squirrels

Humans always throw out the good stuff!

During a relatively warm week in early January, I made a trip to the park that wound up being a lot shorter than I had hoped… not just because the batteries in my camera were junk and went out in just a half an hour, but because despite the milder than normal conditions, the squirrels just weren’t out and about.  Except for one place…..

The park dumpster!

Hey, don’t publish this! I don’t want all my friends to find out I’m a trash digger!

While they’re not as well known for invading our garbage as their nocturnal critter brethren, squirrels aren’t above sifting through our waste receptacles.  Not everything squirrels like grows on trees… sometimes we throw it away for them to find.

Totally not hazardous waste. Unless he gets ahold of some chileh…

You may think that these furry little dumpster divers are sullying the sterling reputation of Saturday Squirrels on my blog, but that’s just rubbish!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    That’s funny, I never thought of squirrels as garbage pickers.

  2. The squirrels in my urban neighborhood must be total gangsters-they absolutely love trash bins-they’ve even been caught chewing the lids to trash bins that were substituted for dumpsters a few years ago to help themselves to dried cheese on pizza containers and other morsels. My trash bin has multiple holes in the lid-I think my resident hoodlum must think it’s a compost bin for his pleasure.

  3. Squirrels don’t see dumpsters……they see an all you can eat/scounge/sniff out buffet!

    Eating someone else’s garbage?? No self respect.
