I just got home from work. Parked in the drive. And I'm sitting in my truck listening to the radio. When, I hear a squalling noise. I look over to my stone wall. And there's an animal going up hill, leeping from rock to rock, on my stone wall with another animal in its mouth! It looked like a light brown bear cub/cat. I only caught a glimpse of it of course. This is full daylight, at 4:45. Kinda heavy brush over there.
But last year a watched a bob cat use that same path. When he saw me he turned around. And back tracked around my house.
I hope was the woodchuck. He's been tunneling under my house. I'm not a violent man. But I felt the need to kill! I hope Mother Nature has taken care of the problem for me!
I think I need a critter cam.

I have had several woodchucks disappear. I give credit to the coyotes. Good Luck, Rick

I hope your woodchuck was indeed the prey in the mouth.  They are a pain.

Rent him out? If you where within fifty feet of that guy, you would back away slowly! He stared me down no problem! I said please don't hurt me mister kitty cat. And went back in the house!

It would be nice if you could tip him. Maybe a nice gerbil!!!


First time I saw him was after I left some chicken on the wall just to what would eat it. I've got some in the freezer right now. But, I need to set up a critter cam first!

I know a professional trapper. He loaned me some "cony" traps. I dispatched two of them like that. The traps have a wire to tie them off to a tree or something. If you don't do that the animal goes back down the hole to die. The first one did. But the second time I learned my lesson. I threw the carcass out in the swamp just to what would happen to it. Buy sunset turkey vultures had found it. The next morning there was not a trace!
