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.
