Woodchuck, or…Whistle Pig?

May 27, 2010

I wondered, are woodchucks and groundhogs the same thing? Yes. They are. They apparently are also variously known as “whistle-pigs” or “land beavers”, both of which I think are hilarious names. Wouldn’t Whistle-Pig Day sound more festive than Ground Hog Day? Or, Whistle Pig Cider, instead of Woodchuck™?

I saw this guy close to the location where the hawk vs. man attack happened yesterday. I think this ground beaver’s mass probably excludes him from becoming red tailed hawk fodder.
