  3. Chapter 3
Chippy, the Steele Creek Park chipmunk was born on a sunny morning in June, just as the sun began to rise over the knobs of Steele Creek.  Chippy, Mom GeGe and Dad Ter loved little Chippy from first sight.  They kept her warm, fed and protected her during the lazy days of summer in their little home in the park.  The furry little creature, began to scamper around the trees, finding nuts, berries, seeds and grains to fill those pudgy little cheeks.  Time went by and Chippy's large, glossy eyes, stripes and bushy tail began to create quite a stir in the park.  Shy by nature, Chippy very slowly began sneaking out of her forest home to see what else was going on in her park.

She found a lovely meadow where men and women were chasing a little white ball around and when catching it they were hitting it with a stick.  Strange she thought.  As she scampered away, she found under a group of pine trees a young fellow throwing a plate and it seemed he was trying to throw it in a chain trash can, strange humans.
