I experienced a demonic squirrel at Grouse Meadows who would not leave my tent alone all night, and dug my pole strap out from under my ground sheet, tent, and directly under my head, to chew it up for the salt.  I had to bring everything inside the tent to keep it away from this pint-sized monster.  I was glad to have the barrier between him and me.  At one point we were eye-to-eye, about two inches apart, with only the Shire's Virga netting between us, and I could tell he was one determined little rodent.
