Freiheit shows how he attaches some granola to the top of the camera and sets it down near some trees.
A squirrel soon takes the bait and carries the camera up a tree. The video shows the theft from the perspective of the pilfered camera as well as a camera mounted to Freiheit's head.
The camera falls as the squirrel finishes off the granola.
"Warning: If you try this, be prepared to lose your camera," a disclaimer on the video reads.
