Actually, according to the web page, A Squirrel Place, squirrels normally don't eat meat. They'd be perfectly at home among the vegetarians shopping at Whole Foods, especially this Vancouver store with it's vertical garden walls and a bar filled with nuts to make your own trail mix!
But if squirrels are facing starvation they have been known to force themselves to eat bird eggs. Oh Yuck! (Oh wait, I eat eggs...guess chickens are birds!) And if they get still hungrier they'll snack on insects or (TOTAL YUCK!) pick at a carcass.
Male squirrels have even been known to eat their young, though this is a rarity.
It's obvious you don't have to worry about your local squirrels taking over your Whole Foods Store in an attempt to grab some tofurkey! But they just might be looking for some of the great nuts they have in their stores, so if you see a furry guy pushing a cart, loaded with nuts, (and he has a bushy tail) you'll know we've been invaded!
