One of my hay helpers brought a gun with him today because I asked him to. He is currently going through the field and has already killed two groundhogs that have been wrecking the field. I don't need to be told that it is an infestation, because it really is. There are far too many of the rodents. As cute as they are, they had to go!

The more you dig up the ground the more they come out the woodwork so to speak. I hate it here in California when they mow all the empty fields so they do not catch fire during the summer season. That is how our house became infested with field mice. All though my German Shepherd at the time did not mind because he had something to chase for an extra snack. Not that he ate them but he pretty much solved our field mice problem by himself. Good dog.

@pgntwo I think he was more of a rodent predator than any kind of herd dog. lol That guy was good at catching mice, squirrels and rabbits.He was a psycho because he never would eat them. Just killed them. Once almost caught a kitty cat. That was a long night trying to get this stay cat that wondered in our house out.

We had a dog that used to love to eat the groundhogs so he always kept the population low. The current dog sniffs them and runs away. Now, one groundhog is plenty for a dog to eat! Some people around here eat them too, though the taste is an acquired one.

Groundhogs are cute rodents as well. It's just too bad they are so destructive with their holes! They get big too.

@Jessicalynnt Groundhogs like to be in the mowed areas. They are hogs of luxury! Now that the holes are being left empty I can go around and start filling them up.

Awww, poor little creatures. I know, I know ... vermin. But still, they're only doing what comes naturally! :)

I feel for them because they are cute and lovable, but they can be cute somewhere else!

@Poppylicious I was thinking that they can relocate and be cute in the woods... but if they don't, being cute in heaven is their next option! Currently 7 are being cute there today. There were a couple bad kills yesterday, but most were instant. I recruited a sniper it seems... he took two out over 100 yards away.

Ground hog, a constituent of the fried pork patty, or Frikadellen...?

@pgntwo So far 4 have gone. I hope many more follow! I can't fix the holes in the field unless the cause is destroyed first.
