Woodchuck Not Welcome
A Washington County woman had a different kind of home invasion recently. Sixty-six-year-old Jean Reddemann of the Town of Addision walked into her kitchen and discovered a woodchuck, also known as a groundhog. They were afraid of each other. She called 9-1-1 and a Sheriff’s deputy responded. He helped remove it by trapping it on the floor between a small cooler and a paper bag. It was safely let loose. It had gotten into her garage and punched a hole in the screen door to her kitchen. The deputy told her it was the first time he had such a call.
