Natural wonder? Snow pea eating marmots

Marmots are fun to look at and photograph. But, when they start eating your snow peas, that’s it.

As you know, I’ve gotten some pretty good photos on my critter cam. The other day I was wondering what was  digging under the shed and getting into the garden. Couldn’t catch a glimpse of it.

So, I set up the wildlife camera and got 136 photos of a marmot trying to break in under the shed where I put a whole bunch of rocks and chicken wire.

The critter got in. Roger’s rooting for the marmot. I’m out four snow pea plants.

Any suggestions? Everybody thinks they’re cute.
