Omnivorous urban wildlife such as raccoons are known to raid garbage for food, but the Urban Skunk Ape is believed to be a herbivore and has not been known to eat garbage. What, then, could it possibly be eating?
Fortunately for the Skunk Ape, Springfield has always been a community of backyard gardeners. In this photo we see one proud local gardener showing off just one of his extra large turnips, each one big enough to feed a Slunk Ape for well over a day! Considering the fact that there are hundreds of gardeners in the city, it is no wonder that the Skunk Ape appears to be so plump. So next time you notice a tomato or zucchini missing from your garden, don't be alarmed - it's only the Skunk Ape dining from Springfield's largest buffet!
