This Nutty Squirrel Stole 150 Christmas Lights

We can't tell if this rascally rodent is a real Scrooge, or if he just wanted all of the decorations for himself.

Either way, his neighbors are impressed but not amused after he managed to steal 150 Christmas lights in just one day.


Margaret Rican from Seattle got the pilfering pest on tape as he chewed the wires off each of her bulbs individually and carried them away.

John Koprowski, a squirrel expert at Arizona University, says that the squirrel probably mistook the bulbs for food. It will bury them and try to eat them next Spring - without any luck.

We say this cute little guy just wanted to get in on the Christmas spirit.
