Red-Tailed Chipmunk

Status

Illustration of a Red-tailed ChipmunkIn both 1991 and 1996, Red-tailed Chipmunks were included on the Blue List of species that may be at risk in the province. This classification was given because populations are assumed to be low, highly restricted in distribution, and vulnerable to habitat loss. Red-tailed Chipmunks are classified as non-game animals under the Alberta Wildlife Act, which means it is illegal to capture or kill them without appropriate permits.
