The man in this video is trying to tame a young wild groundhog. He’s obviously making progress. You can do this with squirrels, chipmunks, and wild rabbits, too.
I hit a home run in a softball game once, courtesy of a groundhog. I hit the ball and it rolled into a groundhog burrow under the left field fence. No ground rule covered that rather unusual situation, so the homer was allowed.
It’s not like I did it on purpose, y’know.
