Those Chipmunks are outsmarting me again

So far this year I’ve removed about a dozen,l but lately one of these little guys has been outsmarting me. Today the food was gone and door of the livetrap still open … hm?

Ah, I see … in order to prevent false triggers, I moved the cage too close to the bricks which prevented the trap’s door from dropping. Let’s rebait and try again.
