My friend across the street texted me this earlier this morning of her next door neighbor (the ones we boo'd) It stole a treat from a boo we left on our neighbor's porch last night. I am pretty sure the chocolate is gone, too.
This didn't happen at Halloween but on Easter one year .... I left the baskets outside when we lived in CA, thinking it was in the back yard so nothing would get it ..... boy was my son mad when he went to get his basket from the Easter Bunny and the local Raccoon gang had beaten him to it! Lol! Taught the Easter Bunny to not do that again
When I was little, my Dad filled up our Easter baskets and hid them in the attic for a couple of days because he knew we wouldn't find them there. Easter morning he goes up to get them, and all three baskets were totally devoid of candy. The big solid bunnies... gone. Hershey eggs... gone. M&Ms... gone. Marshmallow peeps... gone. There were wrappers everywhere, but not a scrap of candy. Turned out some squirrels had found his stash and devoured everything. The thing he found most impressive was he could see all the foil eggs had been unwrapped, not bitten through like the stuff in plastic containers or paper was. They had pulled every bit of foil off.
And for the record... all that candy did not hurt one squirrel that we ever saw.
