'Pole: 1, Squirrel: 0': Determined Critter Repeatedly Fails to Conquer Greased Bird Feeder

A determined squirrel failed in a series of attempts to climb a greased pole to eat bird seeds from a feeder in Chester, New Hampshire, on June 15.

Leslie McLeod told Storyful that she greased the pole in her backyard in order to deter squirrels from reaching the feeder. She recorded this video showing one persistent animal attempting several runs up the pole without success.

“Pole: 1, Squirrel: 0,” McLeod wrote in a caption of a post that she posted on a local Facebook page. Credit: Leslie McLeod via Storyful
