Do you feed birds?   The Natural You: Wild Kingdom

I thought it was a razor blade in an apple. As if someone couldn’t see a slit in an apple skin.

There was one of those but it got in the apple after the kid acquired the apple, and put it in after eating half of it or so which would explain the lack of a slit.

The child put it in himself?

Yeah, he did. Because he had heard about such things and those who found something like that, were the center of attention for quite a while.

It was one of his siblings that tattled on him eventually when the story spiraled way out of control.

Picture a couple of Bart Simpson kinds of antics that got out of hand, such as the infamous "Radio Bart" episode.

Yes, Bart Simpson gets into a lot of trouble, and gets out of it.

Yeah, Bart seems to do a lot of that.

And generations of kids have watched and often gotten plenty of ideas of antics to copy or modify.

I feed birds in a squirrel proof feeder outside my window where the cats can see it, and I also put out food on the ground for the squirriels.

You must live in a place where it’s legal. Here, squirrels are considered wildlife and feeding them is a misdemeanor.

Never heard of feeding squirrels as being illegal...and my feeder is a metal one that if anything heavier than a small bird sits on the perch, it closes up. Even the larger birds such as blue jays are too heavy for it but they enjoy the seed that falls to the ground. Enjoyed the video!!

As for wildlife, I get skunks, possums and raccoons but am too near a city to get deer, bears and so on.

It depends where you live. Every state has different laws. It may have to do with whether or not squirrels carry diseases. In some areas, they do.
