Glacier National Park, MT (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: On the Going to the Sun Road just a mile or so from Logan Pass we saw this in the middle of the road licking the pavement. We took several pictures and then he raised his body and seemed to get into attack mode like he wanted to rip our face off....scarey

Nice capture. These pesky little beasties are awful to deal with and they can dig a hole in no time flat! We had one living under our shed for a while as an unwelcome guest.

Thanks for the comments everybody. I just did some checking and this is what I came up with. It is a Hoary Marmot (Marmota Caligata.) They reside in the NW mountains of US. Considered rodents and #5 on list of predators. Tiger #1. All in all....beware of this fella. Like I mentioned...he scared my daughter to death!

A groundhog is a marmot too. Just different part of the country. They are also called woodchucks or whistle pigs (because they have a high pitch whistle to alert others of danger). Ours are a pain in the butt because they burrow creating large holes everywhere and they reproduce quickly causing problems in pastures, yards, etc. They will also fight with a dog 10 x bigger then they are!
