Groundhog Bastard

My fall garden is being overrun by a groundhog or groundhogs. I have just set up a trap (known as a Havahart trap, which is a catch and release trap) that does NOT kill the animal.

This, let me be the first to tell you, is not because I don't want to kill this animal (as Arlo Guthrie once screamed, "I want to kill!") but because if I borrow my friend's gun and shoot it in my yard, I'll be arrested.

So, let's hope this little bastard likes to eat grapes with peanut butter and watermelon. Because if he touches one more of my peas (or all 100 plants or so as last time) again, I may have to go the gun route after all.
