New Jersey squirrel hates Christmas, ruins holiday lights

Other times, squirrels get so hungry that they munch on some actual Christmas lights causing the lights to switch off and plunge entire towns and cities into darkness.

Last week, the town of Sea Girt, New Jersey found their popular annual Christmas lighting ceremony to be in jeopardy after several wires were found cut. Workers repaired the damage so the tree could be lit on Friday.

On Saturday, police said that surveillance cameras showed the squirrel trying to gnaw through the wires that morning. It was a far cry from the young misfits the town had suspected.
