I was feeding the birds in the park one day...all calm and peaceful
like..and a squirrel came up to be fed...when a bird reached for the
chip the same time the squirrel did, the squirel bit the bird and
shook it all over the place.  I thought it was going to die, but it
flew off after a few moments.  Peaceful moment over after that.
