MAPLEWOOD, N.J. — An portly squirrel was held on video hidden epicurean chocolate and mouth relief that a family leaves outward as a holiday provide for delivery people.
Michele Boudreaux, of Maplewood, New Jersey, pronounced on her blog she provides candy, snacks, tissues, palm warmers and other goodies on her doorstep every year. She never had any issues before, but this year, her basket was raided within hours of being set outward her home.
The burglar seemed to be targeting the priciest stuff, including about 25 squares of Ghirardelli chocolate, she said.
The family set up a notice camera to see what was going on and speckled the overweight varmint station on a step stool, digging by the accumulate Tuesday.
“I mean, this squirrel is so portly — a ridicule ol’ guy — he must be prepping for a decade of winters,” Boudreaux wrote.
Her husband tried to follow it to see where it was hoarding all the treats, but it done a purify getaway.
Boudreaux pronounced she stumbled on the thieving rodent in the act Wednesday, and available it holding some-more chocolate and a Carmex mouth balm.
They’ve devised the ideal solution to the problem.
“We now have the chocolate in a jar that requires opposable thumbs,” she wrote.
The shenanigans “brought my family so much joy,” she told the AP Thursday.
“My kids are getting a kick out of this,” Boudreaux said. “What a crazy squirrel.”
Squirrels are clearly trying to hurt the holiday suggestion all over New Jersey this season. Officials in the city of Sea Girt were undetermined last week when wires to the town’s Christmas tree and display were found torn. Workers remade the repairs so the tree could be illuminated on Friday.
Police kept watch over the display and on Saturday posted a photo on Facebook of the law-breaker — a squirrel.
