I'm just wondering because there are always chipmunks running around inside my dorm building. As an animal lover, I would prefer to just catch one with my bare hands if need be in order to prevent another student from intentionally harming it (you wouldn't believe how many kids are afraid of chipmunks). Although I'm hoping I won't have to resort to catching a wild animal with my bare hands, I would be willing to do so in order to protect it from another student. So I'm just wondering what kinds of diseases they can spread. thanks.
