A squirrel outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine binged Thursday on one of the great human inventions: an Oreo cookie. Barbara Peck got the photo above and the video below of the animal.
And to answer the question: the squirrel appears to be nibbling the cookie without distinguishing between the cookie crunch or the cream inside, a strange strategy that makes no real strategic sense.
Oreo Squirrel may or may not be pals with Avocado Squirrel, who we profiled last year.
Please stop posting “_____ animal eats ____”, it lowers you beneath the RAG status. You guys typically create a good and informative product that allows us Westsiders to know what’s going on and while many articles need some fact-checking, these types are purely for click-bait and besmirch your name.
sounds like an ex upper eastsider to me.

Hey Bob, check out this fat squirrel eating an egg roll in our city!
Oh come onnnnnnnn—chill pill pls! This is light-hearted and adorable! Made me smile.
Iam Bob needs a sense-of-humor transplant.
Thanks. I appreciate the adorable as well as the substantive.
Hey IAmBob – chill.
Everything can’t be so seriously all the time.
I, for one, was also hoping for the video of the eggroll eating squirrel to also be posted!
It was cute seeing the squirrel eat the cookie.
