Designer's son sets up obstacle course for determined squirrel
When Andy Hageman's father decided to set up a bird feeder in their yard years ago, he soon found that squirrels wouldn't leave the feeder alone. A designer by profession, Hageman's father created an obstacle course to try to deter the squirrels, but found the task much more difficult than originally assumed. In the description of the video below, Hageman explains that his father never was quite able to keep the squirrels completely at bay.
After his father passed away, Hageman gave the obstacle course a try for himself, calling it a sort of "tribute" to his father. He wrote in the video's description, "What you see here, apart from dizzy, sick squirrels starts at phase ten (yes 10) and after 3 months of trying I resorted to a 7-iron and a personal attack.....and yes the squirrels ate my nuts!"
The video shows a squirrel attempting and succeeding to make it through the difficult and dizzying course, despite a small bout of motion sickness from the spinning portions. Its determination is remarkable, causing many viewers to leave comments on the YouTube video claiming that the squirrel deserved some bird feed after all its hard work and perseverance.
