Squirrel enthusiast Steve Barley set up a Squirrel Grand National obstacle course leading to his bird feeder and recorded video of two squirrels trying to reach the finish line. Barley provides play-by-play commentary of the event as two squirrels named Ninja Nutcase and Lady Bobtail race neck-and-neck through the course.
Barley has set up a number of different squirrel obstacle courses over the past several years.
