We have a new pet...actually, he's been around for a few months now. We first started seeing him (her?) when just a little bugger no bigger than a squirrel. It didn't take long to find a fair amount of flower loss and damage to the lawn with many large holes being dug.
But, gosh, isn't he cute? NOT! I could so cheerfully wring his neck with my bare hands. But then does he look a bit vicious to you?
Suppose that he can be forgiven for that knowing that the lady of the house is actively planning his demise nearly every waking moment of her day.
What have we tried thus far? Let's see, there's been good old-fashioned poison pellets, cat litter to fill the holes (ugh), and a trap.

Any other ideas besides buckshot or a .22? (Forestalling Vickie right off the bat.)
Hope your day is going better!
P.S. Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's post about trees. Fascinating! Linds, a "right to light" law sounds fantastic.
P.P.S. For those who've wondered, Chomper is a groundhog, also known as a woodchuck or a whistle pig.
