our resident woodchuck is dead

We have been battling this animal for many years, at least 8. It lived under our drain pipe at the end of the driveway. It has eaten my young summer squash. Yesterday it got hit by a car and was upside down & dead on the driveway this morning. My husband had gone to buy some rain barrels and when he came home I was trying to get the heavy thing in the trash bag by wrapping it in another trash bag; I was so glad he got home to help. And then he said: “Ha. That thing was on the street since yesterday afternoon!” I said, “You coward, why didn’t you take care of it??????” Crazy. Anyway, now it is gone, since today is trash day . Hip Hip Horrah ! ! ! ! ! So glad to have that thing out of our lives!
