Wildlife in Town

And even though it was seen on the edge of UK campus, it wasn't THAT kind of wildlife!   On my way home yesterday, I was stuck in traffic (for those who are familar)  on Maxwell St., next to the Rupp Arena parking lot.   I glanced to my right, and there in a vacant lot, spotted what I thought was a squirrel digging in the grass.  When it raised up, it wasn't a squirrel at all, but a groundhog!  Then I saw another one following it.  It seemed to be a young pair, or maybe siblings.  They seemed very unconcerned by the noise and smells of two lanes of traffic just yards from them. 

I shouldn't be surprised, with all manner of wildlife being seen in town, but I was.
