Has anyone ever tried the Squirrel GMO test?

I posted a video at the bottom of this post because I have been hearing and reading so much lately about the premise that animals won't, given a choice, eat genetically modified foods. I don't live in an area where I could try this experiment, but I'm sure a lot of health conscious eaters might have tried it, and maybe want to share their findings.

By a general rule, I don't purchase or [knowingly] eat any GMO foods, and I don't eat a whole heck of a lot of grains anyway, but in past I would enjoy some organic grits made from organic corn along with my cage free (or pasture raised if I can get them) eggs. However I ran across an article that claimed that genetically modified corn is slipping into the organic corn supply.

 

If I live in an area where I could try this, I would be trying it out all the time, that is, if I could do it without having the squirrels thinking they are my roommates. But from what I read, it I kept putting genetically modified corn out for them, they would pack up and move somewhere else anyway.

I would think that if all this was true, there would be a lot more YouTube videos on people trying it. I wasn't able to find many, which surprised me.

However, I did want to post the one below. This video in no way proves anything, but is interesting nonetheless. He just says that the large corn tortilla on the window sill is GMO an the others aren't. But watching that squirrel's reaction to the alleged GMO corn chip closely, I found myself saying WOW, it this is legitimate, them this is SCARY. If you look closely, you can see the squirrel sniff the supposedly GMO tortilla and "flinch" back like something gross is happening there, and it instinctively gets away from it and walks around it to get to the good stuff.  Take a look below ~dw~

That's AWESOME!  I think I am going to try that with the rabiits in my yard and see what happens.  Thanks for telling me about this.  I have heard of the study with the cows not eating GM feed when they had the choice.  Guess they are smarter than us!

She has babies to feed. She saw the GMO hamster experiment where 3rd generation were all born sterile. 😉

I found that the squirrels, raccoons, cats and even birds will
not eat the GMO corn. I used to open the cans and give it to my cats to see if it was GMO or not. The cats will not eat it if it is GMO. Now I can’t find any cans that are not GMO. The chickens and ducks won’t eat it either.
