Fat rock squirrel, Zion NP, Utah

Everywhere that I went in Zion National Park, the rock squirrels were both quite plump and also rather aggressive in seeking food. Despite big signs everywhere telling people not to feed the squirrels, there are so many people in the popular parts of the park that even a small fraction of people ignoring the signs or accidentally dropping things would be enough to support a quite unhealthy population.
