Carla Resident Groundhog


Resident Groundhog


Hi, my name is Carla. My family and I have been living on the Priest Lake Veterinary Hospital grounds for years now. The humans care about us and leave us snacks, like fruit, veggies and pellets. We run around through our tunnel system that runs behind the clinic and underground. We think it was a smart move choosing this area to take shop, as the humans care about us animals!
