Groundhog Day

We have a groundhog living under our deck. My grandfather said it has been there for over 3 years and it never bothered them. Well, now it has eaten our newly planted cucumber plants and my grandmother's black eye susans.
This. Means. War.
They called out the calvary. Muskrat Jack. He does all animal removal/rescue, you name it.
He came out 2 days ago and set a humane trap with an apple. Today the groundhog took the bait.

M.J. had to make sure what the sex of the groundhog was before he would take it. Well, wouldn't you know. It's a GIRL. So most likely she has some little babies under the deck too. We did let the big girl out and finish raising her babies to be a nice size to catch them all too.

They WILL be released somewhere safe and sound. Just no where near our garden.

Have seen you on AndreAnna and Cass. We too have a groundhog. He lives just over the rocks, off the front yard. He has SO FAR avoided my garden. I do yell at him when I see him. I must be scary or something.
