Vile Beast Groundhog Shot To Death By Valiant Officer of The Law

A cruel and villainous groundhog was blocking traffic outside of Baltimore today, but thankfully, a cop came to dispatch true justice and shot it to death with a gun.


The officer was a Carroll County sheriff’s deputy traveling on Route 26 near White Rock Road, “where traffic was stopped because of a groundhog in the road,” as local WBAL 11 news reports. WBAL also included a statement from the brave sheriff’s department:

The Sheriff’s Office said in a statement, saying, “He realized that it was not responding as expected for an animal that was not being cornered or trapped. Believing the groundhog to be either sick or injured, the deputy then put the animal down for the public’s safety.”


Video of the shooting is genuinely troubling, posted here on Facebook.

Damn that groundhog for its horrific crimes, for which it most certainly deserved to die.

The sad thing is that this is the 200th time this particular groundhog has died this particular way.
