Mayor Otter and the town councilmunks were up in arms when they heard what Chip had done. They argued that a fox was not an animal to be trusted, but Chip had already made the call for help and they would have to live or die by his decision. From the day Sly Lee Fox arrived, peanut gang members began to disappear one by one, and far fewer peanuts were being stolen. All Chip could think about was how breathtaking Precious would look dressed in black at Herman’s funeral. He would be there to dry her tears, and if she had not yet eaten that day, he would wrap his strong, short arms around her body and pull her close to comfort her. BUT, as the days passed, Chip became puzzled by the fact that Herman was still seen under the cover of darkness visiting Precious at the Cedar Tree Lodge. And when “the photo shown here” appeared in the Lake Ozonia Press, Chip’s munkey sense began to tingle once again. How could the greatest squirrel hunter in the country keep missing chances to get Herman? How could Sly be so slow coming over the snowy hill when Herman was pilfering peanuts? And most of all, why oh why was Sly Lee Fox looking more happy than fierce in the photo? It almost seemed like Sly was letting Herman steal the peanuts. Was Sly now on Herman’s payroll like so many others? Chip would be the first to admit that Sly might possibly have some gender issues going on under that beautiful fur coat, but diet issues too?? A fox that would work for peanuts? Chip would have to investigate the matter himself. Nobody else could be trusted. He grabbed his DSLR and long range telephoto lense, and headed for a hiding spot with a clear view of the Snowy Hill Peanut Storage Facility that was soon to be demolished by an older gentlemen named Sun Ben Hott, who was turning 70 something this weekend. :))) To be continued….
This photo was taken within the Adirondack State Park in Upstate, NY.
