A squirrel using his car as a stash for walnuts is nothing new to American Bill Fisher of North Dakota. However, he was shocked when he took at least seven buckets of nuts from his car this year.
In a Facebook post, Fischer shared photos of his pickup truck completely filled with black walnuts growing on a tree next to the parking lot. The squirrel did not leave an empty hole. He adds that neighbors can get free nuts from Fisher for the next week.
The text continues after the message.
Fisher says to Washington Post That the squirrel made it a customary ritual to use his car as a hiding place when the nut tree bears fruit. This happens once every two years.
“I have other vehicles that are very close to that tree, but it’s always the same truck,” Fisher told the American newspaper. “I once parked him on the street on purpose, as far from the tree as possible, but the beast still managed to find the avalanche and hide the nut in it.”
It has become a regular job for the American every two years to completely empty the car in the fall. In the meantime, he waits for all the nuts to fall off the tree before he starts them. Sitting there looking at me from the tree, Fisher laughs. “He must be thinking these are mine, my friend, for I take his winter supplies.”
This year, the squirrel set a record. Where Fisher usually has to clean about four or five buckets, there were now seven. He even had to remove the bumper, because the squirrel hid his nut there, too. Still, he can laugh about it. “Dismantling a truck takes a lot of time, but I can’t help but laugh at it.”
