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.
