Hampton couple menaced by aggressive groundhog

HAMPTON, N.H. —A Hampton couple said they were terrorized Tuesday by a groundhog that ran at them with teeth bared.“Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this movement. I turned around and this furry thing is coming at me. He got close enough so I could just poke him with my toe, and I pushed him back a few feet. He just turned around and came right back, and I gave him a harder kick this time,” McGrath said.

The kick did not deter the groundhog.

McGrath went in his garage and closed the door, but the groundhog snuck through another open door.

McGrath said he headed inside and came back out a short time later thinking the animal was gone.

“Here he comes again and he almost got me that time,” he said.

McGrath ran for the front door as the groundhog pursued.

“I took off as fast as I could, which didn’t have to be too fast. He had pretty short legs,” he said. “And he follows me up the steps and started biting, clawing and really acting nasty.”

His wife snapped some photographs and they called animal control.

The angry rodent confronted the animal control officer, who had to get back into his truck for a short time. The groundhog was later put down in the yard. It will be tested for rabies.

McGrath was unscathed, but said he’ll take on precaution in the future.

“Just going to wear long pants and steel boots,” he said.

:laugh:

That's the sort of headline that I'd expect from an English newspaper. :zoinks:

Gary, don't you know that it's rude to bite? :autism:

We have discovered the gopher's identity!
People just like to think they can know who the monsters are, but they can't.

Those things look cute. We don't have them in Australia. Closest we probably have is something like this


They are not as cute

We had two babies running around here this spring, they were adorable, about the size of little guinea pigs...they grew up quick though.

I have one that dwells under my back deck and chews on the deck post every now and then.

They are shy and normally not aggressive...but they chew....and they are slow, so if another animal is sick with rabies, they often get bit.

Why didn't you use this weapon instead of brute force?  :zoinks:
