Squirrel Renegade squirrel steals 150 Christmas lights

Margaret Rican and her Seattle home has been targeted by a thieving squirrel that she has dubbed the "Bulb Bandit." In a series of YouTube videos, Rican documented the pesky rodent taking colorful bulbs out of a string of lights wraaped around her home's deck.

OTOH, he may be burying them and next year the landscape will be bright as the new Christmas trees grow.
