Ice Cream-Loving Squirrel a Hit at NC Beach Shop

There's a North Carolina ice cream shop serving up scoops.but not just to humans!

Owners Scott and Pam Martin of Fantasy Isle Ice Cream & Mini Golf in Holden Beach said the squirrel, named Putter, has been visiting the store for a daily treat since it first appeared in the area last summer.

Putter comes from her nest in a nearby tree, and is given a teensy cone with either vanilla or no-sugar-added ice cream up to twice each day, Martin said. She even has her own little cones.

The owners say she comes down nearly every day for a special scoop.

"One of the first things people ask: 'Is Putter here?'" Pam said.

"It's not good for the animal because you're teaching that animal to expect food from people", Jessie Birckhead, a biologist with North Carolina's Wildlife Resources commission, told the paper.

The Martins quickly grew to like her, giving her the nickname Putter, and now make individual squirrel size ice cream cones for her.

Her flavor of choice?

"She's already got the habit", Martin said. "We're blessed to have her".

A video posted on Fantasy Isle's Facebook page shows the exact moment Putter scurries up to receive one of her cones, grabs it and then runs off to a little corner to happily munch away.
