Have you ever wandered into a bathroom at a campground only to find it’s out of toilet paper? A few campers from Alberta caught one of the tissue thieves on camera this weekend.

Christa Lawrence and her family had just pulled into their lot at the Upper Shunda Creek Campground in Nordegg after being out for the day when her father started laughing uncontrollably.

He’d spotted a little squirrel feverishly gathering toilet paper from a long string leading from the men’s washroom.

“This went on for hours!” Lawrence said Monday.

“He had no fear of us. It clearly wasn’t his first time doing this.”

Lawrence said the squirrel returned to the bathroom about 10 times throughout the night, gathering up more bundles of tissue before scampering away back into the woods.

“And who knows how many before we pulled in? We don’t know.

“We figure he must have the nicest nest in the whole forest.”

Lawrence said the next morning they woke up to find the toilet paper was pulled out the door of the women’s washroom, too.

She and her family, who were visiting from Red Deer, Alta., sat back and watched the sneaky squirrel snatch toilet paper all evening, all of them laughing until they cried.
