Groundhog Gets a Helping Hand
Occurred on June 27, 2020 / Smoky Mountains, Tennessee, USA
Info from Licensor: "On a hike in the Smoky Mountains, my son saw a groundhog with a can on its face. The poor thing couldn't see anything and was walking around helplessly! My husband immediately went over to help it. As he touched the can the first time, the groundhog panicked and rolled around. My husband went in again a second time and got a good grip on the can. After getting ahold of the can, he lifted it straight up and after a few seconds, the groundhog was finally free! We carried the can out with us. This is a good reason to not litter! Leave no trace! The groundhog appeared to be fine. It ran a short distance, then looked at us as if it was saying 'thanks'. Then it ran on up the hill."
