Wow, what is that? It looks kinda of like a squirrel.
I don't know? What should we do with it, Lewis?
WHAT?!! I guess your right. I'm sorry little guy.
I think we should kill it before it gets away. This is so we could study it.
Don't do this. PLEASE!
Hey look, there are more of the burrows. Come on Clark, lets check it out
WHYYYY??? It was so little !!!
September 7, 1804. While on their expedition to explore lands acquired in the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark discovered a village of small animals that burrowed in the ground (today known as the Groundhog).
For the sake of the expedition, Lewis and Clark decided to kill one so they could examine it.
The village of the animals was about 4 acres covered with a great number of holes, on top of which the Groundhogs erected. However, when the two got to close, the Groundhogs would run back in their burrows.
