I just have to shake my head and roll my eyes at this one. difficult child caught a chipmunk in his live trap. In his words, chipmunks are not a problem, they don't eat much so they can be let go. (the live trap is to catch the squirrels that are getting into his bird feeder) So, he goes to let the chipmunk loose and the neighbor's dog gets involved. Without getting into more details, the chipmunk is dead. What does difficult child do with it to keep the neighborhood dogs at bay? Throws it into our garbage can (atleast it is the outdoor one!). I asked if the garabage has been picked up yet? Yes! So, we have a dead chipmunk at the bottom of an empty garbage can destined to sit there until next Thursday's pick up. Icky to extremes! Especially since we are FINALLY suppose to get 80 + degree temps this weekend. I told him to take the pooper scooper and get it out of the garbage can! He has actually done as I asked. He threw it into the lake so is afraid the neighbor's dog will see it floating, swim out and drag it back!
