We have small red squirrels here on campus, much smaller than their larger cousins elsewhere. What they lack in size, however, they make up for in sheer chutzpah. One day, while walking to lunch, I saw what appeared to be a bagel rolling rapidly across the grounds. Closer inspection revealed that a squirrel had seized the bagel, which was twice the size of its head, and was hauling it off to its underground larder.
It’s only a matter of time before they begin insisting on having coffee with their baked goods. Highly caffeinated rodents: another sign of the impending apocalypse. Run for the hills!
