Readerpix: Human-like Squirrel

7/16/2009:

A “longtime” Hoboken411 reader sent in this picture recently…

Hoboken411 reader photo of the day – 7/16/2009

“I was walking to get my car at the Park on Park garage one morning along Garden Street between 14th & 15th Street when I crossed paths with this fearless squirrel standing on his hind legs devouring an enormous slice of pizza, properly folded! I found it quite comical and snapped a picture with my cell phone. A few friends at dinner last night requested that I send it into Hoboken411.”

Thanks for the pic! – But as I realized my cupboards were bare, and about all I had in the house were Emerald Dry Roasted Peanuts – “Something ain’t right here!”

I’ve seen a lot of squirrel-like humans in Hoboken… this is the first human-like squirrel. Man bites dog!

Hey, Ken. Can you be more specific?

Squirrels ain’t friendly but they’re adorable.

My friend and little brother caught a squirrel once by placing some peanuts inside a slip knot they read about in a boy scout handbook. No fake!!!!!

I never fold my pizza slice in half ’cause all the grease starts dripping down. That squirrel needs a napkin ;).

But, so, anyway, this is one of the cutest shots I’ve seen on 411. I feed my squirrel buddies handfuls of cereal, sunflower seeds and honey-roasted peanuts when they stop in our backyard– anything to watch them meticulously chow down.

I love pizza eating squirrels. I see them quite often in Hoboken. The other day I saw a squirrel climbing a tree with an empty juice box carton in his mouth. He dropped it once he got up in the tree.
