What should I do with a groundhog after I catch it?

The groundhog can wreak the havoc in the Tennessee garden and they have big appetite for the vegetables with the legumes while many farmers and gardeners can turn to trapping as the solution. In order to trap the groundhog, you should start by learning its habit and to lure it out of the burrow so that it can take the bait. Even if it is not easy process, you have to do it if you want that your Clarksville garden can grow freely in few weeks.

When it comes to trapping, you have two options. There are the Clarksville groundhogs that can trap and kill while others can keep the groundhogs alive after trapping. Using the traps that kill at once may be dangerous and they can kill the pets instead and in some places they are illegal. The more humane and safer way to deal with the Clarksville groundhog is to use the live traps. A bait is used to rule the groundhog inside the trap and the door can lock itself.

When you trap the live groundhogs, you have to know that relocating them can be illegal in some Tennessee places and you need to call for the animal control company in your area to help you in disposing the groundhog away of the property. So far as the wild animals are concerned, we all are not comfortable to have them at home as neither a pet nor we want them near about us anyway. This is just because of many common reasons. After trapping the Tennessee groundhog, you should cover it using a cloth sheet and this will help to calm the animal down and you will start the business of transporting it. To release the groundhog, you have to choose wooded area away from the property so that it will not be able to return.

You should choose the area where there is enough water and where it can get the food easily. You should talk to the local law enforcement and to the conservation office in your Clarksville area so that they can let you know the right way to release the groundhog. Different states have different rules on how the groundhogs should be released in their place. When you find the right place, you should set the trap down and to open its door. The Tennessee groundhog should have enough time to get away on its own.
