Here's some fun "slice of life" citizen journalism out of Jamaica Plain: A neighborhood resident spotted a squirrel indulging in a slice of pepperoni pizza Wednesday, and her social media post quickly went viral.

Liz Polcha, a Ph.D. candidate at Northeastern University, shared the following photo and message on Twitter late Wednesday afternoon.

According to Universal Hub, Polcha was peering out her window on Boylston Street in JP when she glimpsed the carb-hoarding rodent. Boston Magazine, meanwhile, took the opportunity to round up some other famous pizza-consuming critters.

Maybe the JP Music Festival, which has long used imagery of JP's elusive albino squirrel on its promotional materials and merch, might consider a new mascot for this year's festivities?
