No More Picnic Baskets For Yogi

Try those puppy eyes on someone else chipmunk, cause you aren't getting any of my sandwich; and let me tell you why:

1. Cheetos and Skittles are not part of a natural diet for wildlife, their stomachs just aren't made to digest our food and they may get sick.
2. If people feed wildlife they may forget how to find their own food that they need to stay healthy.
3. Wildlife may associate people with food, which can become dangerous for them and us.

So remember, next time that chipmunk is giving you puppy eyes with a little drool coming out of the side of his mouth tell him to go for a hike and find some natural food!

A chipmunk in serious need of his natural diet.
