Roadside drama!

It’s a wonder this little groundhog didn’t cause an accident.  We came upon a car stopped on the road somewhere in west central Iowa.  We stopped behind and Dan helped do a good deed for the day.  One happy groundhog!

The good Samaritan said he was from the state of Arkansas which might explain why he thought the poor creature was a porcupine.  And, it did look a little like that because it had been raining and its fur was sticking up.   I am sure there are plentiful porcupines in Arkansas, but doubt any have found their way up to Iowa. 

Dumb me—I should have captured a movie of this exciting situation.
