Can't say I condone this, but it's interesting to watch.

The Youtube caption:

Eating lunch on Mt. Whitney and fed a Rock Chuck and figured i'd record it with my GoPro.

Skip ahead 20 seconds to see the fun.

I can't condone this either, Steve. It reminds me of the tourists at Olmsted Point, in the T/Mdws road, feeding tatter chips to the marmots. It makes a cute video, but human food is not good for marmots! Save it for the bears.

Info from a vet: http://drnelsonsveterinaryblog.com/2012/...ld-rodents.aspx

Let's hope the video doesn't encourage other hikers from repeating the performance.
