I believe It is a Townsend's chipmunk, the largest of the 4 species in WA. I did find that all of the piles of Ramick poison were gone and had to replenish last night, so something is dying.You all are not helping with it’s identity crisis, no wonder it is acting out. I am pretty sure that is a squirrel not a chipmunk.
YupOur cat brings us dead critters like that - highly recommend! Wife was pissed when she started bringing in cute but dead baby rabbits though.
Unless you released them into a hole and then filled it with dirt, they probably beat you back to your house!I released them both 100+ yards away from the house. Hopefully they’ll live to tell their buddies their alien abduction story, if they’re big enough to survive out there..
