Evil Ground Squirrels

I defy anyone to look at this pile of perfectly innocent unripe apricots–each of which has had one bite taken out of it before it was tossed to the ground–and tell me that ground squirrels are not evil incarnate.

This is rendered even more heartbreaking by the fact that the right combination of heat, cold, rain and wind to produce any apricots at all on our tree only happens every 3-4 years. We are situated at 3,000 feet above sea level in the foothills on the border of the Mojave Desert.
