This morning we saw a groundhog out by the chicken coop, he was trying to get in, and also appeared to be trying to open the feed lid, which is pretty hard to do. He was giving our chickens a hard time, they were making a racket. My mom and sisters went outside to try and scare him away…They did not get very close to him but he charged at them, they went screaming for the house. My dad who was outside on a business call and he started laughing. It was REALLY funny, but the groundhog chased them all the way to our front door. I wouldn't, however, call it an attack, but I am really concerned now. Did he have rabies? And now it has been reported that the groundhog is harassing the chickens again. Now my dad is battling it. So a few questions: 1. Why was the groundhog trying to break into the chicken coop? 2. Did he have rabies or was he just naturally aggressive/persistent? 3. What should we do about this groundhog? thank you!!!
