CLOVIS, Calif. (AP) — You may have overlooked Squirrel Appreciation Day, but the police force in Clovis, California, didn’t forget.
The Fresno Bee reports that on Sunday the Clovis Police Department posted a video on its Facebook page showing Officer John McGrory give a nut to a squirrel that scampered over to him.
The squirrel calmly took the nut and bounced back to a tree as McGrory laughed.
Squirrel Appreciation Day is celebrated every Jan. 21.
