    Not in the wild. They do fatten up for winters, but far from obesity.

    Knew a girl keeping one for a pet, stuffed full of food, now that guy passes for obese.

    They aren’t , they just need to stock up so they can survive in the winter

    City 'diets' are high fat and high sugar.

    Every animal alive is "prone to obesity" if they have sufficient food supply. There is no such thing as a species evolved to just stop eating. They would go extinct in the wild.

    They are not, it's their body shape.

    They aren't. Don't judge them by human standards. They put on weight so that they can survive winters in cold climates. That's normal, not obesity.
