I visited last week and enjoyed my time there. Question: Near the entrance and next to the fence, I saw a large mammal that looked like a prairie dog; however, it was alone and seemed to be searching for an exit. It had brown fur, a rounded head with round ears and ran along on all fours. What was I seeing? After a short while, it disappeared in the shade of a bush and I didn't see it after. . .my husband thought it could be a woodchuck.
