'Wildlife Trick or Treat' Bucket Set Up in Northeast Minnesota by Fish and Wildlife Service

Forest officials in northeastern Minnesota embraced the Halloween spirit by setting up a trick or treat bucket for wildlife in the area.

Footage posted to Facebook by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service shows birds, including a blue jay and dark-eyed junco, digging into the treat bucket that consisted of dried meal worms, sunflower seeds, pinecones, and peanuts, according to the post.

Toward the end of the footage, an eastern chipmunk is seen poking its nose into the frame and ultimately deciding not to go for a treat. According to the whimsical post, the little rodent was “just checking the inventory.” Credit: US Fish and Wildlife Service via Storyful
