Chocoholic squirrel steals treats from shop

A Finnish squirrel with a sweet tooth heads to a Finnish grocery shop at least twice a day to steal "Kinder Surprise" chocolate-shelled eggs.

The manager of the store in Jyvaskyla, central Finland, has named it the Kinder-squirrel, after the treats. It always goes after them, other sweets do not seem to interest it as much. The confectionary, which is intended for children, has a toy inside. It removes the foil carefully, eats the chocolate and leaves the store with the toy.

Unfortunately, the bushy-tailed thief does not clean up after itself, but leaves the wrappers behind.
