Croton on Hudson Police Blotter Update

Fawn Nesting Under the Apple Tree

This week our local paper reported on an incident occuring in town on Sunday November 27. At 5:50 p.m. police responded to a report of a groundhog blocking traffic to the main entrance of ShopRite Plaza. A caller said it appeared the animal was ill; the responding officer determined the animal only appeared to be perplexed and shooed it away.

Having been raised on a farm where ground hogs were serious pests, I can’t help but muse on some of the differences between real country living and village living a few miles from New York City. Wildlife in the Westchester County hills face very different threats than their country cousins. There is plenty of wildlife; deer, wild turkeys, coyote and birds of prey. We are still trying to find ways to co-exist when there is less and less space for burgeoning populations and more and more competition for food. (The baby deer in the picture was nesting on my lawn while his mother was out foraging!)

The perplexed critter at the ShopRite Plaza should be very glad that he’s a village ground hog rather than country groundhog where any kind of trespass in the human plane would have been met with very different results!
