The first shot was five peices into stringing, after that what happened is found below that. I strang while they ate. I managed to get a string on the tree. But the next day, we all took a nap and I got woken up to “Mama the popcorn is falling off the tree!”. I went down stairs to see what was happening and found that the string had big sections with no popcorn on it. They had eaten it right off the tree without moving it one bit.
