Groundhogs have many names including ground pig, whistler, and red monk. On Eighty Acres I also have given them many different names...some not repeatable!!! Groundhogs are great diggers and with their powerful legs and thick claws seem to enjoy digging in my flower beds and under my garden shed. I'm all for coexisting on Eighty Acres but strongly encourage all groundhogs to respect my space! The photo above shows a groundhog standing on its hind legs with his mouth full of oak leaves intent on building a nest under my terrace steps. Please! Go away or there will be big TROUBLE!
