View Full Version : Life Ground Hog under the hood, chewing wires.

So my brother is about to leave to go to the bank, he gets in and his van won't start up. So he pops the hood only to have a giant groundhog sitting on top of his motor. That thing tore his hood insulation all apart, and just about every wire that was near him. We had to keep jabbing at him with a stick until he would hop down, then try and scare him out from under the van. Big fat old groundhog too, I have personally never seen this. Out on the farm we used to catch 20-30 of these things a year in quick kill traps. Now is your turn to tell of any crazy animal stories?

A ground hog chewed a hole in the heaviest pumpkin in the US last year, disqualifying it a week or so before its official weigh-in.

Only good ground hog is a dead ground hog.

When I was in high school I would kill ground squirrels on my grandpas runway by pouring water in their hole and when they'd pop their head up for air, I'd stab it with a screwdriver.

I hate rodents :cuss:

Ground hogs also like eating seats on dirt bikes and ATV's. I was back fishing with a buddy of mine, about 15 miles back from the nearest road. We came back from a lower stream and there is a big old nasty ground hog sitting on my buddys dirt bike seat, just going to town. We get within 25 yards and the thing doesn't move. My buddy drew his .22 pistol to light him up and ends up shooting his gas tank. :) Old Dave never was a great shot. I had to end up giving him a ride back that day and back the next week to take care of the "dead gas tank."

i thought i had a groundhog penned behind the freezer in my shed a few years ago, so i turned the lab and the bulldog loose on it.

turned out it was a frickin badger, instead. sliced up the bulldogs nose pretty bad, and the lab knocked me over running out of the shed.

When I was in eastern Colorado they had a couple high school kids working the grounds crew. One guy would pour water down the hole while the other practiced on the gophers head when it popped out. That kid was dead on with his 7 iron!

Are you serious? If so that is pretty funny, I bet it wasn't then, but it's a good story now. MO, yeah I have my dog, but we are at work.

Groundhogs are vicious cocksuckers. When I was about 12, my dad let one out of a trap he'd set and gave me a shotgun. I almost blew the sonofabitch in half with some #4 buckshot. That was a good time.

I think I've told this story before on here, but when I was about 5 or 6 a rabid possum crawled up on our back deck and right up to our back door. We had glass doors, so I could easily see him staring me right in the face while drooling and hissing.

Well my jackass dad started joking that he was going to open the door, and kept putting his hand on the doorknob and turning it. I don't think he realized how much that would freak me out, but I remember shrieking and crying hysterically until my grandma almost punched my dad in the face.

To this day I am absolutely petrified of all rodents, including possums.

this was a mean mfer...chewed thru the first arrow i thumped him with. covered w/ticks, too. i'd hate to come up on one w/o seeing it first. i'm sure the dogs weren't very happy w/me either.

I was going back to close the chicken coop one night, and it was pitch black. Only the barn light was shedding a little light. Well I had a stick in my hand, and I heard some hissing so I backed up slowly until I was in the light, and then got rushed by a raccoon. Mean sum beach, he must of been rabid, I cracked him on the head with the stick, and then he veered of course. I know if I didn't get him on that first hit, he would of bitten me for sure.

Really because the guy down the street selling them for $50 bucks a puppy says that it's true :) Like I have talked with you about, I would love to see if my dog would be worth her salt, protection wise.

I'm sure it does, and it would probably win the war, but it might lose its share of the battles. Those fucking badgers are bamfs. Their fucking skin is really loose on their body so it is tough for a dog to bite and do damage. They are low to the ground and powerful. And those claws are MEAN.

My dad ran down one on a trail road in his spray pickup (it was a 1 ton chevy with a 500 gallon tank, 70 foot boom and the pump and plumbing, so it was HEAVY). He ran over the fucking thing 4 times and couldn't get it dead before it got down the hole.

If you do turn your dog lose on one, make sure you have a gun there - probably bigger than a .22 - just in case.

I understand. A badger will fight most like a raccoon, but is a mean son of a bitch. Just a fair warning. Your dog will probably come out on top, but I'd pack some heat just in case.

So how did it take down a deer? Did it mangle a leg and then go after the throat or what?

My dogs have chased plenty of deer, but I don't think they'd figure out a good way to bring it down without it getting away.

Agree, but it will likely get tore up in the process of "winning." Badgers are mean son of a bitches and very strong. I have had some experiences with them as well. They are not wolverine strong, but they are wolverine mean when they get pissed off and are a hand full.

Mo, your dog may win, but save a couple hours of your time to doctor up your dog after the shit hits the fan.

That's quite a feat. Dog must have injured a leg badly to keep it from just bolting and getting away. That would be something to see.
