Just as everyone was sleeping and they all thought it was over, due to their last retaliation, the shadow people were back with a vengeance, and took the squirrel while he was sleeping. Nobody noticed it until the morning, when he was already gone.
In the morning when all the animals found out what happened, they all decided to let bear and deer stay back, while tiger and wolf go travel to the shadow peoples hide out, and retrieve squirrel. They would not let the shadow people take their friend, just like they hadn't let them before.
When tiger and wolf got to the shadow people hideout, they found squirrel and the shadow people and finished the shadow people off for good, and made sure that there were none left. They found squirrel, and he was alright, and they took him abck to the other animals immediately.
Now with the shadow people gone forever, there was nothing to worry about. The whole family celebrated when squirrel got back, and played the whole evening. Everyone was happy to see him when they got back. Now they can sleep in peace, knowing one of them won't be gone in the morning.
