It’s an impossible mission, but this squirrel gladly accepts it.

Channeling daredevil Tom Cruise in one of his action movies, this very nimble squirrel is cruising for a bruising as he ascends a creaky bird feeder in an attempt to steal food from it – and he gets totally busted by a GoPro camera in the process.

Will he make it to his intended goal? Far be it from us to spoil the suspense. Let’s just say this acrobat will have plenty to “squirrel away” for the winter.
