Witnessed a crime scene at EPCOT!
 
We just got back from our trip to the world! While in a YES program workshop with my fourteen yearbook students, the kids were completing an assignment by taking pictures that told a story. One of my girls caught a squirrel in the basket of a stroller. The squirrel had taken a ziploc bag, with a sandwich inside of it, out of a diaper bag at the bottom of the stroller. It then proceeded to take part of the sandwich out of the bag, and eat it! Those poor people are going to think someone was pilfering through their items, when in actuality it was a naughty squirrel! My student's picture definitely told a story. We told her she would be a great crime scene photographer.

That's great! Well not for the poor sandwich owners. Darn squirrels..rats with furry tails.

LOL They will be wondering "Now who on Earth would steal a sandwich????":lmao:

We have warning signs at our zoo that the squirrels can and will steal anything that isn't locked down, and even open zippers.

I have photos of a squirrel doing the same thing at Epcot! We came out and he was pilfering through our diaper bag!

He was very bold and not a bit afraid of us. We shooed him and he just went on to the next strollers. He must have it made living next to stroller parking.

I will look through my pictutes and edit to add the exact location. My memory fails me on that detail.

ETA - He was at stroller parking for The Seas building.

Now there is a Disney secret worth looking for on my next trip! :lmao:

A similar thing happened to us a few years ago. We exited Spaceship Earth to find a naughty little squirrel sitting in my DS's stroller eating his bag of potato chips that was left in the bottoms of the stroller.:lmao:

Never mind the squirrels! How about those birds who pilfer food from the strollers at MK? I've seen those tiny thieves rifle through popcorn, snacks, etc. While folks are on rides. I'll bet they have no idea their food has been tampered with. --worse yet, I've had a hotdog stolen out of the bun just as I was about to eat it -- by a seagull!!!:rotfl2:

Hilarious!!

not much else to add, but for the OP - GO GATORS!!!!!

My last trip, I was waiting for Off Kilter and there was this squirrel running around the area. He started running up people's legs begging for food. Luckily for me it was December and a little cool. I had long pants on when he tried begging from me. He seemed to understand the word "NO" :rotfl:

Squirrel bandit! Those have to be some seriously cute photos though.

TravelAgentJen 03-27-2013 07:26 PM

Ha,ha-that is too funny!

Squirrels are also a nuisance at fort wilderness. They not only got into out tent and ate some of our snacks, the peed on our table. Gross!

we just saw the same thing outside the imagination building on Sunday. squirrel was sitting there chomping on some goldfish he had "fished" out of a stroller in a ziplock bag that he had chewed through. I will be much more aware of what I leave in our stroller from now on!

Aren't there "tame" squirrels in Epcot? (where's Doug when you need him?):lmao:
