Time out for Chuckles

Huzzah! We caught Chuckles today. This juvenile groundhog, whom we dubbed Chuckles, had taken up residence in our run-in shed. Through creative means we convinced him/her to move elsewhere. Unfortunately "elsewhere" ended up in a burrow under our garden shed inside our garden's perimeter electric fence. Dang. So we got a live trap. Turns out apples are a primo bait for wood chucks.

So after taking this picture, I lugged Chuckles down to the creek and freed him/her in our lower wood lot. Hopefully it's well enough away from the garden that we won't have a Chuckles sequel.
