Dumpster-diving Squirrel

A photo gallery in the Lexington Herald-Leader documents how a lucky squirrel retrieved an entire fast-food meal in a trash can at a city park.
The squirrel climbed inside the can and came out with a french fry. After eating the fry, it went back in the can and came out with the remains of a fish sandwich. Local parks were crowded this afternoon as temperatures neared 70.

The story was featured on the front page of the paper, prompting debate on its newsworthiness. It may be filler for a newspaper, but it's just right for Neatorama. Link -via Fark

This ALWAYS happens around my work. My Work Campus has many large Trash Cans with a large open mouth on the side. One day I was going into one of our buildings and I heard what sounded like a Starwars Laser battle happening from the trashcan near the door. I stood still and tried to figure out what was going on. Then a very angry squirrel popped out the mouth and then saw me and just jumped as hard as possible back into the trash. So loud bang as the he launched him self into the metal can and then I heard a noise and nearly fell over with glee as two squirrels popped out of the trash can. So the laser sounds was a fight in the plastic liner as they chased each other. Thank-you Mid-West Tree Rats for your entertainment...and possibly rabies.
