The Chipmunk Relocation Program

We have had some chipmunks around our house living off the bird feeder.  They have tunneled through the flower bed and under the deck.  I put out a Hava-hart live trap and have caught a chipmunk every morning for the past 3 days. I have relocated them to the Watson Hollow Road cemetery which I pass on my way into work.  I have read that relocated animals don’t have a high survival rate due to pre-established territories by others in their species.  But the chipmunk survival has to be better than that of the mice I catch in the house.
