Not all New York City rodents crave fast food.
Instead of schlepping a pizza slice down a flight of stairs to the L train, or fetching a Shake Shack milkshake from a trash can in Madison Square Park, Tomato Squirrel seeks sustenance with actual nutritional value: he pilfers a beefsteak tomato from a woman's grocery bag, left unattended on a city park bench.
After grasping the fruit with its front paws and teeth, the squirrel drops the tomato to the ground in a video posted to YouTube last week. Eventually the bandit lugs its loot to a grassy field.
We salute your healthy choices, Tomato Squirrel, if not your crooked ways.
