Post #42573

My back yard is fenced in and a groundhog keeps getting in and eating the coleus and tomatoes. We found where it was getting in under the fence and put wood and rocks there but it's getting in some other way. I went to the hardware store and of course he recommended a gun. I can't aim a camera so I don't think anyone wants me to have a gun. I've only seen it twice, once in the road. I tried to run it over, but I haven't had much practice running things over. I think it's living under my neighbor's shed. the guy at the hardware store suggested putting Juicy Fruit gum out - it messes up their stomachs. I don't normally feel this outraged about an animal but it keeps going in the tomato bed and taking one bite out of 6 tomatoes. I would make it a tomato sandwich if he'd leave the rest of them alone. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
