We know we have a groundhog issue because of the deep holes in the backyard. We called Critter Control who did tell us groundhogs are the hardest animal to trap, but we asked them to try anyway. But, now we learned they've caught 3 raccoons and one is in the trap right now. I hope CC comes to collect him soon because Ferdie and the raccoon made each other's acquaintance in a very scary way.
This thing saw Ferdie and immediately stood up, snarled in a way unknown to me before and lunged toward the dog who then followed suit. Ferdie then ran up to the deck and observed from a safe distance.
I'm saying right now, this is the last raccoon I want to catch. Collinsville must be rife with these animals and after catching 16 raccoons two summers ago, i have no desire to keep doing this. We just want the groundhog to stop making deep holes in the yard.
