Determined Chipmunk 'Tries to Steal' Hiking Pole in Emerald Lake, British Columbia

A hiker in British Columbia captured a video of a chipmunk “trying to steal” a hiking pole in Emerald Lake, on July 17, he said.

This video shows the pint-sized rodent handling the pole and trying to fit it in its mouth.

Shane Firth captured the video and told Storyful he flew across the country for his birthday to go hiking in the Canadian Rockies.

“After reaching my destination on my first hike and taking a break to enjoy the snow-melted mountain stream, I spotted this determined chipmunk trying to steal my hiking pole,” said Firth. Credit: Shane Firth via Storyful
