Sometime yesterday evening, my house was broken into. I was able to apprehend the intruder this afternoon.

Alright, so maybe it isn't your stereotypical breaking and entering, but he still put up one heck of a fight.

The old wood stove in the picture is located in my basement, and hasn't been used since I moved in three years ago. It connects to a full brick chimney outside. Apparently, Mr. Squirrel got a little too curious and fell down the chimney into the wooden stove. That must've been quite a fall!

He got stuck in a bend in the stove pipe last night, and I had no way to get to him. He created one heck of a racket, and I thought someone had broken into my basement until I located the source of the noise.

He must've made it the rest of the way down the stovepipe into the stove itself sometime last night, and I was able to get him into a bucket.

He is now safely outside once again, doing whatever squirrels do when it's 8 degrees and snowing. Now I'll have to make an expedition onto my roof to figure out what happened to the mesh covering on the chimney...

He looks intimidated.

Did you rack a 12 Gauge before snapping the pic?

I bet he has it recorded on tape and plays it non stop in his basement.
