Like an Eagles Fan, Squirrel Keeps Sliding Down Pole Greased with Crisco
Susan Shold of Minnesota had a problem. "The squirrels were just eating all of my birdseed," she told InsideEdition.com. Then she remembered hearing about how authorities in Philadelphia had applied Crisco to light poles, in an attempt to stop Eagles fans from climbing on them. "And I thought, 'Well, what could it hurt?'" The result? No contraband birdseed for this squirrel. "They're smart," said Shold. "But I'm going to be smarter."
