Squirrel has the most patriotic nest in town


www.dispatch.com< br />

PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) -- A brazen squirrel has been grabbing small American flags placed in a cemetery and carrying them up to its nest, which now looks as if it's bedecked in bunting.

Every Memorial Day, volunteers place the flags next to the graves of about 965 veterans buried at Mount Hope Cemetery on the city's north side. The flags were undisturbed during a Mass held Monday.

Here is the BEST of today's news in the Not 2 Be Missed section of the Columbus Dispatch. It would have been cool to see a photo of this patriotic nest. I think the suggestion at the end of the article that "Maybe they are trying to tell us it is going to be a hard winter," Caglarek said. "Why use leaves when you can get flags?", just shows the ingenuity and evolution of our animal brothers & sisters.

Here's a link with a few pictures.

Edit: Turns out the reason they are scattered through the branches in the pick is a high wind blew them around after he make a nest with them.

Awww... I like squirrels even though they are the most persistent and annoying creatures.

Probably why I like them.

I hate to see my fellow countrymen "wrap themselves in the American flag", but when it's a squirrel, it's so cute!

Thanks, Hazelnut, for the enjoyable read.
