Once at the auto shop, even more walnuts were found. There were enough to fill up half a trash can, Persic said.
In all, Persic estimates more than 200 walnuts were removed.
As for Persic's truck, it turns out the squirrels likely got to it, too.
"My truck may have had a squirrel chew through/pull out a fuel injector hose, and Holly's looked like they were storing up for the next 3 winters. Was absolutely nuts...no pun intended," Persic posted on Facebook.
Coincidentally, Persic said he had just had someone at their house to get an estimate for removing the walnut tree.
Well, it looks like the squirrels saw that coming and decided to take what they could, while they could -- unfortunately, at the Persics' expense.
"Long story short, if you park outside, do yourself a favor and check under the hood every once in a while," Persic said in his Facebook post.
