If you browsed any form of social media yesterday, chances are you stumbled upon the viral Pizza Rat feasting in a New York subway station.

Turns out, the pizza rat isn’t the only critter in recent history to get a hold of an iconic New York foodstuff. This New York squirrel was spotted stealing a leftover Shake Shack milkshake from the garbage bin, proving that even animals can’t resist the power of Shake Shack.


The squirrel pops into the trash can, delighted to find the remnants of someone’s meal. He expertly takes the drink into his mouth and carries it over a fence where he can enjoy the shake all to himself.

Just look at his happiness and satisfaction post milkshake-grabbing. This makes us wonder whether he should be the Shake Shack’s official mascot. 💯
