Man and nature have always seemed to simultaneously be at ease with each other as well as at war with each other, and the latest news out of Fargo, North Dakota seems to confirm that information yet again.

A Chevrolet Avalanche owner from the remotely situated state returned to his vehicle recently to find an unbelievable surprise: a local squirrel had chosen his car as its nesting place for the winter.

Who, me!?


While we often think of deer, elk and moose as the greatest threats to our vehicles during the late summer, fall and winter months, this time it was a single squirrel that made short work of the man’s monstrous vehicle.

The Avalanche’s owner is Bill Fischer, who spoke to The Grand Forks Herald about his surprising issue this past week.

A local squirrel had been hoarding nuts from the man’s black walnut tree, and placing them inside of his vehicle for its own later use.

While the tree is beautiful and carries hundreds of the highly medicinal nuts inside, it also also led to the devastating issue caused by the man’s “squirrelly” local neighbor.

“The squirrel will come behind, run along the frame rail and all the way up to the front [of the truck],” Fischer told The Herald.

“Mostly under the hood and in the fenders,” he added.

“It was planning on camping there for the winter.”

Thus far, over 40 gallons of walnuts have been removed from the car according to Fischer.

He added that he has even pulled off some of the vehicle’s body panels to retrieve some of the hard-to-reach nuts, but many are in in the frame rails and other seemingly impossible-to-reach areas.



“I had to pull the fenders off and clean out all the walnuts out, and thought I had them all and took it down the road, turned the corner and found one rolling down the windshield where the wipers go,” Fischer said. “I have some rolling around the frame rails as well, that I can’t get at.”

To make matters even crazier, the damage was entirely done by a single red squirrel, the North Dakota man added.

The red squirrel has been busy fighting off several grey squirrels that had attempted to steal his nuts out of the back of the truck.


The squirrel doesn’t appear ready to give up on his nut-filled territory just yet, but one thing’s for sure: he’s not going to be able to take them all with him, especially after Fischer is finished cleaning his car out.

If you’ve got a walnut or other nut tree in your house and you’re going to be leaving your vehicle unattended anytime soon, be sure to heed this advice: squirrels are not to be underestimated, so you may want to plan ahead to make sure this doesn’t happen to your vehicle! 

(Just in case you do happen to be wondering, they sell an organic squirrel, rabbit, elk, moose, deer and vole repellant that works on all sorts of creatures on Amazon.com, and it can be found by clicking on this link…Sounds like a great way to protect my vehicle for the…(ahem) prime nut-storing months ahead!)
