    The squirrels in my city are so spoiled – I once saw one running up a tree with a whole donut in its mouth on my college campus. Kinda sad, since they probably couldn’t function very well in the wild. But I guess the reality is that these squirrels will always live in the city – at least there’s lots of urban parks for them to play in.
