Ryder's Animal "Trap"

The following post was dictated to me by Ryder (9, Champlain Elementary):

Two weeks ago, I made un animales trap. At first I dug a 12" deep hole in the ground. Then I put acorns and beech nuts in it and covered it with moss. It was supposed to catch squirrels but we got a lot of other things too. I learned how to set up the game cam and put it in certain spots you're most likely to get different animals. To get raccoons we would put the camera down by Brick's Brook. I was surprised that I got more things than just squirrels, like skunks and grackles.

In the videos, the squirrels stole the acorns. They put them in their little mouths and ran away with them. They then bury the acorns in the ground to eat later. Enjoy the videos!
