New York Minute

[November 4, 2008]
I had some time to wander around New York City after Rhinebeck. I discovered Madison Square Park - which turns out to be nowhere near Madison Square Gardens.
As I was walking through the park, I saw a squirrel crawl into a garbage can. He emerged with a crumpled up paper bag that must have contained something that smelled appetizing. As I watched him, he spun it around in his paws as he tried to figure out how to get at his snack. Eventually, it fell out of his paws and dropped to the ground. The squirrel gave up on the bag, and decided to look for something less labour intensive.
The paper bag remained on the ground beside the garbage can.
At that point, I realized that this squirrel had just littered!
Given my history with rodent encounters, I decided it was best to just keep walking.
