Release to Freedom
For those of you who may have been wondering how 'Munk' has been doing after his rescue about a month ago; I, actually, went up to Weston, CT, on Saturday and watched him dash to freedom. When I say watched, I mean just that. In the blink of an eye, without time to click my camera, he was gone. Off to critter-land and the world of nuts, berries and other animals, large and small.
The people at Wildlife in Crisis couldn't have been nicer, more helpful and, definitely, understanding as I probably called far too often while checking on the well-being of my little friend. Peter (yes, we're now on a first name basis) was very informative and wonderful. I'm not sure if I annoyed or amused him with my multiple inquiries; however, I did hear him chuckle from time to time.
So my final update from Critterville is that, after 2 weeks in the hospital, all is well. My chipmunk is gleefully running wild in the woods and making new friends, and hopefully, staying away from cats!
Here are a few photos that I took when I went to witness the 'Release to Freedom'. It is truly amazing what the volunteers do to rescue our wildlife. I, for one, am most appreciative. Thank you!
