Happy Groundhog Day!

Today is Groundhog Day and Indiana has it’s own resident groundhog.  Dandy is a resident of the Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center in Carroll county (northeast of Delphi).  It is a State and Federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation center.  Her name is Dandy, because dandelions are a groundhog’s favorite food.  She was born in the summer of 2012.  Here are some pictures of Dandy at her home at the Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center.
