Fat squir­rel steals pricey goods left out for de­liv­ery folks

Waterloo Region Record - - WORLD -

An obese squir­rel has been caught on video steal­ing gourmet choco­late and lip balm that a New Jer­sey fam­ily leaves out yearly as a hol­i­day treat for de­liv­ery peo­ple. Michele Boudreaux says on her blog she pro­vides candy, tis­sues, lip balm and other good­ies on her doorstep. This year, her bas­ket was raided within hours. The thief was tar­get­ing the prici­est stuff, in­clud­ing Ghi­rardelli choco­late squares. The Maple­wood fam­ily set up a sur­veil­lance cam­era and spot­ted the over­weight varmint Tues­day. It cleared out all the choco­late, snack bars and throat lozenges. She stum­bled upon the thiev­ing ro­dent in the act Wed­nes­day, and recorded it tak­ing more choco­late and lip balm. She says they now have the choco­late in a jar that re­quires op­pos­able thumbs.
