Lock your doors!

“EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) – U-S flags marking veterans’ graves at an Eau Claire cemetery have been disappearing by the dozens.
The flags have been ripped from the poles in one whole section of Forest Hill Cemetery.
Groundskeepers suspected vandals. Maybe kids were stealing the flags at night.
Then groundskeeper Dave Ender made a surprising discovery. The thieves have fur — squirrel fur.
Ender was mowing the cemetery grass when something high in a tree caught his eye — something red, white and blue. Ripped and tattered flags formed the foundation of a giant squirrel nest.
No one spotted the furry thieves when they scampered across the cemetery with the goods in their mouths. Enders figures the squirrels conducted their clandestine operation at night or very early in the morning when no one was around.”
