Photobombing marmot takes out Greenpeace glacier cam
When some Greenpeace USA activists went out to retrieve a GoPro camera they had left in Glacier National Park to record a time-lapse video showing the adverse effects coal mining had on national parks, they were horrified when they found their set-up in disarray.
Instead of capturing breathtaking scenery, the camera was on the floor shooting nothing but rock - ruining the project.
Or so the Greenpeace folks thought.
Once they retrieved the video and watched it, the activists received a pleasant surprise as they uncovered the culprit - a curious marmot.
Aside from photobombing the video, the intrepid rodent decided to show some love for the camera before tipping it over.
While Greenpeace lost their original work, they gained a cute mascot for their cause, which is surely more fun than literally watching ice melt anyway.
Check out the video in the gallery above and, if you still can't get enough of the furry critters, here's a funny sketch involving "talking" marmots from BBC's Walk on the Wild Side series. Enjoy!
