A hungry squirrel was left doing an unexpected pole dance as it tried to reach a bird feeder thanks to a witty Florida mother.
The woman was tired of squirrels eating all the food in her bird feeder so she decided to grease up the pole leading up to it.
The women’s daughter recorded the hilarious moment the animal slid down the pole as it tried to steal a snack.
The video starts with the curious squirrel approaching the pole.
The woman’s daughter was recording from a distance as not to disrupt the little creature.
She posted the hilarious video to Twitter with the caption: ‘my mom put oil on her bird feeder to keep squirrels from stealing the bird food and’.
The animal gets about half way up the pole when the grease becomes too slippery, sending the squirrel back to the ground.
Confused, the squirrel reassess and tries again.
The animal climed back up to no avail, leaving the Florida mother victorious in her efforts.
