Dear Neighborhood Squirrels,
I owe you all an apology. I have blamed you for eating my strawberries, taking one bite out of my tomatoes and other garden crimes. I know now that you likely did not commit these crimes as I never saw you in my garden; I just assumed it was you. Mammalian stereotyping is wrong. I know that now.
I saw yesterday a chipmunk committing all these crimes. It was only my second sighting of a chipmunk in my whole life and I just saw him enter the garden area, groom in preparation for a feast and then hop right through the bunny-proof fence in the strawberry patch. Watching him methodically pick and subsequently consume a strawberry lets me know this was not his first time.
So, again, I am very sorry for repeatedly accusing you of these crimes.
