I can’t blame squirrels for tearing apart pumpkins placed outside of homes this time of year. It’s a bit like putting a margarita and fresh-out-of-the-fryer tortilla chips in front of me and expecting me to simply admire the bounty.

Besides their tendency to make a holy mess out of the pumpkins, there’s also the problem of squirrels eating fermented pumpkins and getting wasted and making a fool of themself on YouTube!
