Squirrel hid 175 pounds of nuts in Chevy Avalanche pickup while owner was away

A Fargo, N.D., man returning from a four-day trip discovered a large cargo in is 雪佛兰 拾起, but not in the bed.

Bill Fischer revealed on Facebook that a squirrel had stashed 175 pounds of black walnuts under the hood of his Avalanche in the engine bay.

I could only laugh at the situation as it has occurred in the past,” Fischer told SWNS.

This year was a record.


Fischer said the nuts come from a nearby tree that produces a biannual harvest and that he’s previously spotted a red squirrel making trips toward his truck and has tried to use deterrents, which didn’t work this time around.

I have in the past used a mixture of cayenne pepper and tabasco sauce in a spray mixture under the hood,” 菲舍尔说.


The insurance salesman spent seven hours removing body parts to get to the nuts, which filled seven five-gallon buckets, but doesn’t think he got to all of them.

Some of the nuts I am unable to retrieve. They are hidden inside the frame,” 他说.


Avalanche itself is nearly as odd as the situation. The short-lived model features a bed with amidgatethat allows it to be extended into the rear seat area for added carrying capacity.


The Avalanche could’ve handled a much heavier haul if the squirrel had loaded up the cargo box instead of the engine bay, as it has a payload capacity of around 1,200 磅.

Maybe next winter.
