Groundhogs will cause extensive damage to your property and landscape. Groundhogs rarely pose a threat to humans or pets, as they are more afraid of them than anything. They sometimes emit a shrill “whistle” when frightened and will run into their den opening. However, a cornered groundhog will fight to defend itself and, like all mammals, they can carry the rabies virus. Care and respect need to be taken when dealing with wildlife, including the groundhog.
