Beaver in Libby Hill park?

I was in Libby Hill Park tonight and saw this guy run in to a gutter near the bottom of the park on the cobble stone in to what looked like a drainage hole that needs maintenance. I got pretty close to him before he freaked out and disappeared all the way in to the hole.

Strange site for Church Hill.

It’s a woodchuck! I’ve seen them in Libby Hill Park and at the base of the hill near the 26th Street steps.

yup, that’s definitely a ground hog. we/ve seen em from time to time in Chimborazo park in the “wildlife” area. very shy; also known as “whistle pigs” due to the whistling sound they make to warn other groundhogs when danger is approaching (e.g. human, dog, etc.)

That beaver has been in the park the last 6 years. We’ve seen it walking our dogs. It’s always budy scurrying around.

Wow, that’s pretty amazing Jfos. Do you think I could get it to walk my cats too?

(Sorry, I couldn’t resist).

I’m surprised no one has claimed its a historic contributing animal to the district.

Aren’t the parks just looking lovely this time of year with traffic cones and weeds and broken sidewalks? Just wonderful.
