Aug. 17 (UPI) -- A mischievous squirrel raided a Canadian campsite in search of toilet paper.

Christa Lawrence was camping with her family at Upper Shunda Creek Campground in Alberta, when the wily squirrel grabbed the end of a roll of toilet paper from the men's outhouse and quickly began unraveling it.

"My dad saw him first and started laughing, completely uncontrollably. And I just looked over and there he was, pulling the roll out from under the door - pulling and pulling and pulling," she told CBC.

Lawrence said the squirrel returned to the campground about a dozen times to collect more toilet paper, moving to the women's outhouse after it had exhausted the supply at the men's.

"This went on for hours!" she told Global News. "He had no fear of us. It clearly wasn't his first time doing this."

Lawrence and her family were thoroughly amused by the squirrel's antics, as they speculated how many rolls of toilet paper it managed to nab before they arrived.

"We're figuring that he's nesting, getting ready for winter," she said. "Clearly he'd done this before."

The family plans to return to the campgrounds and request the same spot next weekend in hopes of witnessing the squirrel's bizarre routine again.
