A recent pizza theft by a renegade, power hungry squirrel was first thought to be an isolated and somewhat magical occurrence. However, a new trend is developing as our favorite photo subjects get more ambitious in their dietary choices. A hapless student eating lunch outside turned away for a moment only to discover her pizza slice being squirreled away—perhaps by that same conniving rodent, newly dubbed Mozzerodent by our resident mammal aficionados.

The victim reported that she, “sensed a squirrel right behind,” her, and watched sadly as the theft was carried out. We await the next inevitable attack with a mix of horror and fascination.
