Chipmunk gang acts with impudence in High Park. To achieve their goal - get as many nuts as possible - they use people.
High Park territory in the centre of Toronto is so huge that it makes local fauna – chipmunks, foxes, flying foxes and even deer feel as if they are on home ground.
They got used to people as well – this service staff brings them food a few times a day. The bravest ones in the park are chipmunks. They will follow you until you feed them sunflower seeds or nuts – chipmunks feel free to pull on your pants, block your way and chase you around the park.
