Another Wildlife Sighting

Sunday when I was driving home after morning church services, I made another wildlife sighting. I was exiting an Interstate highway onto a state highway. Given the way that intersection is configured, there is a ramp going straight ahead and one which goes off to the right. Between the two is a sort of island of vegetation and that’s where I spotted the wildlife.

I don’t know what these animals were. They were about the size of a cat and were a sort of rusty brown color. One was busy munching away on the grass. The other one sat up on its haunches and, using its front paws, pulled a taller weed stalk over to sample.

I’m not sure what they were. Their fur looked like it would be soft to touch. Alas, the light changed and I had to move. I’ve never seen animals there before. I’ve no clue where they came from or where they live since this is a fairly busy urban intersection.

Based on my sketchy description, do you have any clue what they could have been?

    Try googling images of groundhogs. I’m not sure where you are, but I live in Tennessee and we’ve been seeing them now and then both in town and in the countryside. My parents know farmers in NH who had a single strand of electric fence around their garden, about 3 or 4 inches off the ground, to protect it from groundhogs.
