    Haven't seen mine yet this year which is not to say he/she isn't about somewhere. He/she (I don't know its preferred pronouns) tends to be elusive but sure is fond of my vegetables, especially tomatoes.

    I've read that they often use multiple dens. They'll use one den to have and raise their pupsters. Then they'll move to another den later in the season.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Excuse me Sir, that sounds a lot like inter-species xenophobia.

    Perhaps Groundhogs (with their Victim Culture Cult minders) will see you in court!

    You do know that the word "rodent" isn't meant as a derogatory term? It's the abbreviated name for their scientific order(Rodentia). There are 2,700 species categorized within the "Rodentia" order. That order makes up literally 40% of ALL living mammals! They include squirrels, chipmunks, hamsters, capybaras, prairie dogs, marmots, beavers, porcupines, etc etc. Some species within the order Rodentia are among the most intelligent animals, and prairie dogs have a larger vocal "vocabulary" than any other animal as of now.

    They make for good eating in potluck stews. A bit bony, but the bones are good for picking teeth afterwards.
    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    Mine usually hangs out in a long storm drain pipe under part of my property since that is where I see it run to most often during fair weather, but I know it also has a den under at least one of my brushpiles as I have seen it over in that area and discovered the entrance this past winter. I assume it is the entrance as I doubt anything else would have made a groundhog sized hole in the ground. That is also closest to my tomato patch I have seen him/her sitting there picking and eating the low hanging fruit from.

    I really don't mind it that much as long as there aren't a dozen wreaking havoc. If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have noticed the pilfered veg was missing. Cats are old enough they don't try to make bigger things their plaything anymore. The racoons, possums, deer, and ground hog they are fairly used to being about the place. Deer are my bane, but when you have partially wooded acreage on an urban fringe, you are going to have deer regardless of what you do.
