CHICAGO (WLS) -- We introduced you to Chicago's own pizza squirrel on Friday, and our viewers let us know there were plenty of other food-loving squirrels in their own neighborhoods.

Chicago's original pizza squirrel was spotted near the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Bishop Street in Ukrainian Village, but viewers sent us photos of squirrels noshing on everything from mangoes to tostadas to, well, trash.

And the original squirrel? Our viewers were skeptical of him as well. "Photo is a fake, no self respecting pizza joint in Chicago cuts their pizza in triangles," wrote Patrick Ritschel on Facebook.
