I have two large rubbermaid containers to hold my bird seed. I leave one of them on my porch because I’m too lazy to walk it back to the barn and put it away.
Twice I have found the lid opened and chewed. Oh, I think to myself, I must have left it open. Huh.
Yesterday I found a chipmunk inside. Well, I had no idea how to get him out, and there was absolutely no way I would pick up the container and shake it (because what if he climbed out and attacked my face?) so I yelled a lot and tried to look menacing. He inhaled 5 more sunflower seeds and then took his time leaving. I shook the container to see how much he had eaten.
And there was something fuzzy inside.
So I calmly put it down on the ground, in the sun, walked back inside the house and waited for hubby to come home the next day and deal with it.
