About the Groundhog (Marmota monax)
The groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as a whistle-pig or woodchuck, is a rodent of the marmot family. It is found throughout North America and common in the northeastern and central United States as well as Canada. Groundhogs can be found as far north as Alaska, and as far south as Georgia. Their diet includes wild grasses, berries as well as farmer grown crops. The groundhog typically grows up to 26 inches in length and weigh up to 9 pounds, though some ground hogs have reached nearly 30 inches and weights of nearly 30 pounds. Groundhogs are well suited for digging, with short, powerful limbs and thick, curved claws.

For an additional fee, we can arrange to have a semi truck trailer that is equipped with a lift gate that will lower the crate to the ground. This service ONLY lowers the crate off of the semi truck to the ground, it DOES NOT provide service to move the crate from the spot it is unloaded into your house or business. This lift gate service can be of great help to those that do not have access to a forklift or small crew of people to assist in lifting/lowering the crate to the ground.
