When you visit Glacier National Park in Montana, Columbian ground squirrels pretty much rule the park. They are brave. They are cute. They are thieves. If you’re not watching, they don’t hesitate to take food right out of your hands or pack.
I wish I had been recording this adorable ball of fluff. You should have seen him strutting his stuff, trying to impress all the tourists enough to sneak him a little food when the rangers weren’t looking. But I was strong, I never gave in! Mostly because my husband wouldn’t let me. I mean, how could you say ‘no’ to that face?!
