I've got two access holes (about 6 or 7 inch diameter) leading under my
trailer. Finally saw a woodchuck, or groundhog, crawling under the trailer.
I'm not all that pleased with the idea. How to take care of the critter?
Living in a mobile park, firearms, handguns, grendades, dynamite, and
anthrax spores are discourged. Though, high power lasers may be acceptable
if used during the daytime.
Speeding and spitting are more likely to be civil infractions. The trapping
of wild animals in one area and then taking them somewhere else is a
misdemeanor (at least here in MI).
Other than that, your argument is weak. Lots of things are against the law.
That doesn't mean that laws are to be ignored.
I spent years trying to protect my garden from woodchucks. The best
defense was fence material installed about 3' around the garden AND
horizonally around the garden. To that I had to add an electric fence,
battery operated, about a foot off the ground. That worked quite well
but cost around $60. That makes the veggies a tad bit expensive!
I located the holes, there are always at least 2, and filled them with
alternate layers of plastic shopping bags and egg-size gravel. The
nasty criters have a hard time digging through the layers.
No wood chucks have been seen in over a year!!! Good luck
That one is just PURELY gonna leave a mark !!!! :-)

Suggest you move. The woodchuck always wins. LOL I'm currently using a
hav-a-art trap with some success but a DEC person told me it is illegal to
transport them so I still have to shoot them (in the trap) and put them in
the garbage. A neighbor suggested I gas them (in the trap) with auto
Would that I could -- at least move to some place legal to shoot the
Illegal to transport? That's a new one on me. My Dad tried to "get the
squirrel out of the yard" with a havhart trap. And a friend of my Dad's
tried shooting the squirrel. The friend is a military vet, and lives in the
country. Dad quit after some number of squirrels, and the other fellow quit
after 300. Neither made much progress.
Now, if they coulda been selling the tails for a buck a piece?
Live trap them, fill a kiddie pool with water, throw trap in water. No
need to shoot holes in your trap for nothing.
All this hub-bub about moving an animal- BFD. It might be against the
law, but what is worse: moving an animal to a remote area or killing
it? Give your ticket for relocating an animal (good luck even getting
one) to PETA and let them fight it out.
I have NEVER heard of anyone actually getting a ticket for animal
