I was driving down my street last fall, and caught a glimpse of a squirrel trying to drag this bottle up a tree!!
Honestly! (I am NOT making this up!) I had my camera...and that in itself is unusual... and was able to shoot some pictures. Good thing! Who would have believed me?
He dropped the bottle and later I was able to zoom in and read the label. It was a herbal preparation for sore muscles!
Poor little guy. I can appreciate that he might have sore muscles... jumping from limb to limb and spending long hours outdoors in cool and damp weather.
He tried repeatedly to lift the bottle and drag it up to his nest.
He was unsuccessful in removing the lid, but you sure have to give him an "A" for effort. Somehow I wish he had been rewarded for all of his hard work but the bottle was on the ground the next morning. I am sure that the squirrel was nursing some pretty tender muscles after that kind of exertion!
