We have the same problem at our zoo with crows. They're really smart critters!

Ever since I started noticing squirrels in strollers and sniffing/licking around water bottle tops, I wasn't able to leave ANYTHING in a stroller anymore. Of course stroller days are done for Ds, but the memory is still big in my mind.


These were taken last year at the Boardwalk pool; people in neighboring lounge chairs had eaten and gone off to do something, leaving all their food scraps behind.








That little dude REALLY liked the leftover mayo in that packet. I was so glad when the people came back and did NOT try to eat anymore of that food, LOL. We told them about their visitor anyway, but it wasn't as time-sensitive as if they were about to use the mayo or something.

Many years ago, my 4 year old DD had her hand bitten when one of those stupid cranes snatched a piece of turkey leg straight out of her hand! It was bruised for a few days.

I will say... these pictures and stories are making me very happy that my stroller days are behind me!!

My friends were at AK and saw a squirrel run into a store and steal a snickers bar and run back out and up a tree with it.

We walked past some people at AK who had just bought a turkey leg. They were surrounded by those white birds. The people said "I wonder if they are cannibals?" and tossed them a piece of turkey. Of course they ate it, they don't know what it is...

And so it continues that they look to us for food!

I'm sorry about your daughter, even though it was years ago. I was once bitten by a goose at a park, and it hurt and was scary and I STILL don't trust geese.

Oh my gosh, I watched a squirrel bolt into a shop in Universal's IoA and steal a snickers bar last time I was there! It was the weirdest thing I had ever seen, and I wished I had thought fast enough to pull out my phone!

Instead, all I did was point and scream, "Squirrel with snickers!"

This whole thread is hilarious and a little bit scary! Now I'm nervous about leaving things in the stroller when I visit with my friends who have young kids!

Maybe Kronk can come have a talk with them and persuade them to leave our stuff alone

I think that squirrel stays around there all the time. We've seen him numerous times begging food from people waiting for Off Kilter to start. I've got a cute picture of him somewhere, sitting up on a guy's knee eating a cheeto.

So, that stroller parking is a hot spot. I won't be able to post pictures soon, but sa the same thing with squirrels. In fact, I took some pictures. There were 2 of them. One got i a bag that was hanging froom the stroller and the other attacked the basket, where it found an oreo treasure.

To be fair that basket was so full of snacks and drinks that looked like a mini mart.

Will post a picture next week.

I had purchased French fries from Cosmic Rays and was walking to meet up with my family at the Buzz meet and greet, a black bird flew down and stole a fry right off if the fry basket. I screamed because it just scared me. At EPCOT my husband and I saw a squirrel, at the character spot stroller parking, going from stroller to stroller taking food.

During my last visit I too was a victim of thievery. While sitting outside at Pecos Bills putting ketchup on my fries a bird (Ibis) sits on an empty chair at my table and as I look up at him I
Think what a pretty bird when faster than the speed of light this bird harpoons my burger and away he went. Many in the area
Witnessed the theft so Disney was very nice and sent me a gift
Card to cover my next lunch during another trip.
