Pizza-eating squirrel spotted in Bogota

Posted: Updated:

New Jersey is home to some of the best pizza in the country.

It seems that even the Garden State’s wildlife wants to get in on the action as a pizza-eating squirrel was spotted in Bogota.

News 12 New Jersey viewer Tito Jackson sent in a photo of the bushy-tailed creature enjoying a slice while sitting in a tree. There was no word on that type of toppings were on the pizza.

Squirrels have been getting a bad rap in New Jersey as of late. An overweight squirrel was caught on camera stealing snacks left out for delivery drivers in Maplewood.

Squirrels were also to blame for nearly canceling the Sea Girt Christmas tree lighting when they chewed through the wires.
