Heat and humidity has been unreal here too. Suppose to be in the 90's everyday this week. Funny you mentioned a ground hog. My grannie has one that's been raising hell in her garden. We've been trying to trap it, but got another guest instead, lol.
Nice catch there!, never know what you're gonna get in those traps. Those ground hogs can be tricky to catch, suckers are fast too. Best way to get em is with a .22, but who has time to watch the garden all day and night. They destroyed our pumpkin patch and cabbage early on this season, still got plenty of green beans, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers though. I guess you take some and give some, lol.
