I've spent much of my life living in the country and have had several bicycle-related incidents with various critters. My most current incident occurred while Fall has come upon us. While preparing to set out on a ride, I gathered some cycling gear and accessories to take with me until I needed them. When I went out to my bicycle, I noticed that I had forgotten to close the zipper on my rack trunk that I carry my gear in from the last ride I took. When I opened the main compartment, I discovered that some pesky squirrel decided to use it to store its vast cache of acorns until it returned to survive on them through the winter! I removed my rack trunk, dumped out the acorns in a nearby place, fastened the rack trunk on my bicycle, put my gear inside it, and went on my ride.
Have any of you had bicycle-related incidents with critters?
