Yesterday the groundhog came out of its burrow while the dog was outside. Shelby immediately took off after the groundhog and cornered it by the fence. After a battle, Shelby killed the groundhog.
Although I really wanted the groundhog to go away, I feel terrible now. I am thankful that I did not witness the fight. My husband did and said it was brutal.
It remains to be seen if we have a colony of if that was the only one.
I find it ironic that I, someone who writes murder mysteries, could be so upset by the death of a pest rodent.
