Whistle Pig

I've never seen a groundhog (woodchuck, whistle pig) in the yard or the neighborhood until this fat, sassy thing showed up yesterday. It dug a shallow trench under the fence and started sucking up bird seed like a vacuum cleaner.

Great shots. The look on it's face in the 2nd shot is priceless.
That's nice Brian. They used to plentiful here but have become a rarity.
Sorry for your loss (of bird seed) but I had to laugh! Such a fat, cheeky fellow! Great captures of this bandit! :-)
your pictures are always the best. those teeth...those ears, what an interesting character!!!
