A few days ago I went fishing at the neighbors pond. I was sitting on a bridge (same bridge I found the snapping turtle) and after a few minutes I looked over and there was a little chipmunk peaking around a piece of drift wood staring at me! I didn't think much of it and it ran away. A few minutes later it came back and would run up about five feet from me then run away and stare a me from the end of the bridge. Yesterday, the same thing happened! In the same spot! The first time I noticed it, it was about 3 feet from me. It continued to run around and look at me for about a half hour or so when I decided to take a pic for everybody.

I also took a quick video before I left.

We have like 5 of them running around if not more at the house. They drive us nuts because they are destructive little buggers. Very cool pic and he must have been entertained or intrigued enough to get closer.

Was there anything else happen about this same time? Like you suddenly found bait missing?
Next you'll see him running off with your best $10 Rappala lure.

LOL! No, I didn't bring anything with me. All I brought was what I had on the end of my line.

Pretty cool picture. Your little buddy is cute there, but there is no telling what mischief he is up to around other areas of the property.

Ryan, get you about 4-5 strawberries and make a trail of them right up next to you. You'll have a friend for life and he'll come right up there and get them. My in-laws had a strawberrie patch and every so often you would see a berrie bouncing thru the grass.

Ryan313 she gets fed regular cat food also. I think it is just a hobby for her. Some are partially eaten and the rest are just DOA.

Them little buggers can carry a nut or seed up an exhaust pipe, all the way to the valves!

Ryan, I am sure you haven't considered this yet... but you're on 'his' bridge lol. All animals are creatures of habit, and that little chipmunk probably lives on one side of the bridge and crosses it to the other side to gather food. The fact that you are in the middle of his route and there is no other route across that water... he doesn't know what to do, or if you are permanent lol.
