The thing under the porch

So Deb is down at the farm. She was too sick yesterday to take the train back. I'll explain why in a bit. So she calls me at work and asks:

"What kind of critter sounds like a bear and would be shuffling around under the front porch?"

To which I say, "I don't know, a bear perhaps. You know a little short one. Or a tiny cougar or maybe a rabid raccoon or even a wildebeast. They sound like bears don't they? Why don't you stick your head under the porch and see what happens?"

And she says, "I'm really not thinking you are such a nice person right now!"

For the record, the most fearsome critter I've ever seen under the front porch was a ground hog.

Very well could be. I've seen a few out in the woods.

We have them here ... remember I had a problem with the horrible growling and found the hole that was being scratched out under my deck last year (before the new deck was built?) I believe there were two of them fighting and hearing them below me when I put cat food out on the deck was very frightening. Had I seen two badgers fighting there, I would have taken my 12 gauge to them. It was the most awful growling I've heard in my lifetime.

I'll check this weekend. If that's what it turns out to be, a high pressure sprayer ought to do the trick.
