We all know squirrels like to eat various roots, nuts, pine and other seeds. But those foods are either seasonal, difficult to acquire, or buried underground in a place where the squirrel simply can’t remember.

Fortunately for them, there are plenty of alternative food sources, wherever people tend to gather.

As a follow up on last week’s post, Pollen, Butterflies, and Squirrels, you can add the few items below to the list of “unnatural” foods these local rodents have been seen munching on.
