Just last week a panicked homeowner called Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control who is the leading groundhog control company in Owings Mills because their Cairn Terrier ran down a groundhog burrow and never came out. The dog was in the burrow for 8 hours before resurfacing. Happily, the dog was only lightly scrapped up however it did have to receive rabies shots as a precautionary measure. At another property on Golf Course Road, Owings Mills 21117 a groundhog excavated so much dirt from under part of the home it caused the foundation to severely crack and caused one corner of the foundation to drop 3 inches. This groundhog had 5 entry holes that lead to an elaborate system of tunnels and chambers that spanned about 100 feet wide in all directions. Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control estimated that the overall length of the tunnels was about a 1/8th of a mile. This project probably took the groundhog about a year to complete. Groundhog experts at Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control have decades of experience and have never seen a groundhog burrow so large before.
