Squirrels force St. Paul park to scale back holiday lights

The squirrels in Mears Park in St. Paul, Minn., such as these on Monday, Dec. 20, 2021, are fat, bold and accustomed to being fed by people. They have been chewing through wires on the Christmas lights, so Mears Park isn't lit up as usual this holiday season. (Scott Takushi/Pioneer Press via AP)
