Offbeat Video

By Ellie Duncombe

Forget the nuts, this cheeky little squirrel prefers to stuff his cheeks full of cushion instead.

Candidly filmed in Glenda Schutle’s back garden, in Miami, Florida, the cute critter can be seen sitting on Glenda’s swing chair, helping herself to the lining of her cushion.

The retired 72 year old said: “I was sitting having a coffee at my dining room table when I looked up and saw the little imp gleefully stuffing her cheeks.

“I guess she was gathering nesting material, so I turned on my video camera and let it run for about 20 minutes.

“I don’t know how long she was there for but I’m glad I hadn’t bought new cushions for the swing like I’d planned to.”

After ripping the cushion to shreds, Glenda posted the video to Facebook to let her friends see the brazen creature for themselves.

She said: “It’s a good thing God made squirrels cute!”
