#16 – Let Them Eat Steak

As we’ve already seen in this countdown, squirrels will eat, or at least pick at, just about anything edible they find lying around.  That includes our discarded human food, of which the edibility may actually be in doubt.  And while squirrels aren’t carnivores by nature, they’re not exactly strict vegetarians either.

First off, before explaining any more about the set of photos accompanying this squirrel, I should note that I really don’t know what in the hell that large object is that he’s found there.  But I’ll be damned if it doesn’t look like a slice of leftover grilled steak.  It would make some sense too since this photo was taken just four days after Memorial Day, one of those traditional American grilling holidays.

Square steak? Opposite of round steak, I guess…

You can see what appear to be sear marks from a grill on the underside of that chewable.  That was the first indication I got that this might be a rare sighting of a meat eating squirrel…

He quickly spotted me and took off up a tree with his treasure.  But not before I was able to get a few more pics of him…

Makes a nice tray table…

Come on, give me a good look at that!

Here you go!

That definitely does look steak-like.  Maybe a bit petrified from laying around for a few days….

Gratuitously blurry close up…

You never know what you’ll find in the park.  For my 16th favorite Saturday Squirrel of All Time, he scored on a grade A cut of Angus beef…

    His teeth are sharp enough to cut that up!

  5. I thought it was a piece of toast at first, but it does look like steak. Huh. Mine only eat seeds, corn and nuts. They don’t seem to want anything else. I’m just as glad. I’m not grilling steak for them.

  6. Looks like it’s time to fire up the ole BBQ and do some short ribs for the neighborhood riff raff.

    What self-respecting meat-eating American would have grilled that steak and then chucked it on the ground, though? Maybe it was left as an offering to the squirrel gods of the woods…
