Fact: wild squirrels are extremely fidgety filmmakers.

While this cute little rodent eventually dropped the camera from the tree to the ground after eating the bread, Viva Frei was not quite as lucky when he tried to pull off the same stunt a few days later with another squirrel that decided to leave his camera on the tree, forcing him to get his friend Warren to retrieve it by climbing the darn tree. Squirrels sure learn fast!
