I had an big empty plant pot in my yard that was turned upside down, and there is a small hole on top for water drainage... I have just discovered that two chipmunks got inside the pot and couldn't get out. And they are dead, they died because of me. I hate myself so much right now... and I have two bodies in my yard and I can't even touch them. What do I do??? I thought I heard scratching last night outside, but figured it's just some animals roaming around... if I only have lifted the pot last night.

You didn't kill any chipmunks. The chipmunks got in a situation that killed them. Stop blaming yourself. What happened was a misfortunate accident.


Why can't you touch them? Use gloves? Bury them or let scavengers get a meal.

One of them is alive! Barely... he looked dead but now is breathing, but barely. I put him in a box in garage with food and water, maybe there is still a chance. The other one was very dead and I buried him.

I know it's technically not my fault, but I feel very very bad.

hug.gif Im so sorry. Maybe he'll pull through. If you have the money you can always take him to the vet.

I'm so sorry. That is horribly upsetting, I can't even imagine! But it was an accident and at least you are doing your best to care for them respectfully. Can you take the recuperating chipmunk to a vet or animal rescue?

That is so sad, my simpathies to you. Like foreveraspirit said, you did not kill them!!! Stop thinking that way! I hope the one survives, but you didn't do this, it was a misfortune of circumstance.
