So we have to take it a step further to the sidewalk.
|close to the street and cars|
Of course this causes problems. The squirrels can scoot up the trees in the cobblestone areas which gives them a sense of security, but out on the open sidewalk, run-ins with pedestrians -- including dogs -- are common. Not good for the digestion!
And of course there's the problem of the remains of the day -- the mess of peanut shells on the sidewalk. Then the security guard complains about who is going to clean up all the shells. I tell him that it would be so much better if I could feed them "in their habitat" (as he calls it), like we used to do. They were safe from dogs and people in their sandbox, and people didn't have to worry about stepping on peanut shells. And so it goes.
