Answer: Groundhogs will come very close to people, and decks are a favorite groundhog haunt. This animal has a particularly nasty bite so you are wise to be concerned. You can live trap it fairly easily using fresh fruit or produce as bait. (Lettuce works well.) Be sure to first verify any local restrictions on trapping and releasing these animals and be very careful when you release it! You might want to call in a professional.
