Squirrel stealing large pastry

A squirrel did not have pity on a fellow rodent and stole its lunch before fleeing with the loot, leaving its friend alone and hungry, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

The incident unfolded on Saturday in Aurora, Colorado.

A man was driving down a street when he spotted a squirrel holding a large pastry in its mouth.

The driver stopped his vehicle and began recording the spectacle outside a home.

Suddenly, another squirrel approached and grabbed the pastry from its fellow rodent.

The victim froze and watched in horror as the thief began fleeing the scene.

The thief was then seen racing away with the loot in its mouth, leaving the victim alone and hungry.

The video was uploaded to YouTube, where it went viral.

The man who witnessed the theft wrote: “I was cruising through a condo parking lot early on Saturday and this Squirrel caught my eye. I thought that no one would believe this so I whipped out my phone and caught this squirrel carrying a giant danish in its mouth.

“It was looking for a cup of coffee I think. A bigger squirrel then stole the pastry before it had a chance to enjoy it!”
