Back to the Groundhog

Now that I am back home and I hope my daughter is coming tomorrow.

I will explain these pictures. The one on the left is the live trap. I use a live trap to catch animals as groundhogs and raccoons and take them to the State Forest and turn then loose . Now my husband says a gun would work better. I told him that when I get to the Pearly Gates I don't want the guard to say I see where you killed 5 groundhogs in August of 2010. Because a couple of years ago I took 17 raccoons for a ride.

The picture below is the damage that they can do. This is at the grain bins and this is the corner of the bldg that has the scales and switches for the legs and electric panels. The trap is still set up in case we find another. I have some pictures of some babies that I took a couple of years ago and they look like puppies real cute. If I find it I will post it.
Take care until we talk again


  1. Are groundhogs the same as woodchucks? We have a woodchuck problem. :(

  2. Just remember that these "cute" little varmints can turn very nasty in the blink of an eye!

    There's an "n" in varmits? Who knew?????
