Got one!

Well, we finally caught a ground hog... not sure if this little buddy was the destroyer or not but he sure was cute! We relocated him to a woodland wonderland that is not our yard and he immediately started digging a new hole. Jeremy fed him apples and pears and he just ate and ate. It is impossible to stay mad at these dudes. I am not sure we will try to catch one again, it was sort of traumatic. The groundhog was fine, but while he was in the cage he was so upset and it felt really bad to be responsible for his misery... it was very temporary though.

I always feel really bad if I have to catch anything too. This guy is so cool though! We don't have groundhogs in the UK. They are so funny looking!

Woah, I never knew they were so *huge*!

Oh, he is a cutie, indeed. We caught one this summer, too, but it was a much, much sadder incident due to the fact that it was our industrious, well-meaning dog who did the catching. The only good part about it was that it was quick. I still feel terrible. Glad yours got a new woodsy home.

OH man, we have one or a family of them underneath our beach house....they go in our garage there and pull out things to build their fortress with. This past summer my Dad said one came in and took a whole shower curtain he was using as a tarp for the kayak. sheesh.
