Young Groundhog

Yesterday the dog announced to me that something unusual was afoot. This groundhog was what it was. It was a youngster, quite small. I took this picture through the screen on the porch. He seemed unsure of what to do and was just sitting still and looking around while the dog barked. Eventually he (it) wandered off. My only hint of why it may have come to visit was that the day before I had some bush hogging done and perhaps that had disturbed its nest or made the territory look unfamiliar. Even though I do not relish groundhogs in my yard eating up my plants and digging burrows, I did feel sorry for it and wondered where its mother was.
