Horse Steals Camper’s Chips Right Off Her Plate

Camping is a summer staple for many families. It allows us to unplug, explore nature, and live a little more simply for a few days.

I grew up camping each year and I have so many awesome memories with family and friends. More often than not, we were joined by a few uninvited visitors, like blue jays, squirrels, raccoons, plenty of bugs, and the occasional bear.

It was instantly apparent that the horse loved the chips and ended up going back for seconds. While the campers told ViralHog, “The horse was the camp pest,” their belly laughter and outrage at the situation is a good indication that it’s something they’ll remember forever.
