He may only be small, but that doesn't mean he's not important!

This adorable baby chipmunk fell 20 feet from his nest in June. He wasn't hurt, but there was no way for him to get back up to the nest, perched precariously on an air conditioner high off the ground.

 

Luckily, neighbours in the area spotted the little creature and called Animal Aid Unlimited to come to the rescue.

The team arrived, armed with plenty of rope.

As they mounted the flat wall of the building to get the chipmunk back to safety, the team could hear his mother's worried chirping. But help was on its way.

They had the happy surprise of discovering three brothers and sisters waiting for him in the nest!

The team at Animal Aid managed to get the chipmunk back to the nest safely, reuniting him with his siblings and his desperate mother once more.
