Just a squirrel trying to find a nut..

It’s 2022 so it only makes sense that people are are in with fat squirrels roaming around the University of Michigan Campus.

At the start of the month, the Ann Arbor news did a story on a very fat squirrel that has been running around the UofM campus. Since that story, more photos have been shared of that squirrel and other fatties around the campus.

They have gotten so popular that during the Michigan/ Nebraska football game last week, the ABC sideline reporter did a story on them.

Of course students at the school have began to feed the little fat squirrels, which is not good for them and ultimately leading to their massive weight gain.

Now the students are being told not to feed the animals because they will become human dependent

Here is more on the story and photos:

More 'chonky' squirrels are showing up everywhere at the University of Michigan

ANN ARBOR, MI - National awareness of University of Michigan's "chonky" squirrels is perhaps at an all-time high. Nowhere is the evidence more apparent than on the Nov. 12 national ABC broadcast of the Michigan football game against Nebraska, where sideline reporter Quint Kessenich did a short segment on UM's furry residents.


This is going to be what happens around campus!
