It's a dog-eat-dog world out there β€” or in this little guy's case, a squirrel-eat-milkshake one.

A new video shows a savvy New York City squirrel diving into the trash to grab a milkshake. He deftly flings aside the straw and lugs his special treat out onto the lawn.

Ripping off the lid, he dives in headfirst β€” all in front of a cheering crowd of people who sound like they've never seen a squirrel before.

With the world cooing over the newly famous pizza rat, New York's animals might finally be having their moment in the sun. Way to go, little guys.
