Dead chipmunks portray Michigan State's miracle football win over Michigan

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Touchdown! Chipmunks?

A Lansing taxidermist is honoring Michigan State’s stunning football victory over Michigan with dead, stuffed chipmunks portraying players on the final play.

Jalen Watts-Jackson returned a fumble for a touchdown on Oct. 17. Nick Saade has a stuffed chipmunk wearing a Spartan helmet and crossing the goal line with a football.

Chipmunks with Michigan helmets are in pursuit. A referee chipmunk has its arms raised to signal a touchdown.

Saade tells the Lansing State Journal that the chipmunks were trapped by friends as nuisance animals.

The display includes a scoreboard. It’s for sale for $1,500.
