Dear Sherry,

as cuddly and cute as the groundhog (Marmota monax) looks, I'm mad at him
for eating away almost all my Shasta daisies, my Montauk daisies and the
many sunflowers I had planted.  Even chicken wire cages around the plants
didn't help much.  He seems to get up on his hind legs and nibbles away
whatever he can reach.

In German, he is called "das Waldmurmeltier" - the wood marmot - and that's
where he should stay.

Neighbors on Chace Ave + Chace Drive are planning to put out a trap, catch
him and then transport him to the woods.

La lotta continua,
Ly, 22 Chace Drive
