(NEWSER) – “OMG. This cop is talking to the freaking groundhog.” So begins a video posted to Facebook that shows a Maryland sheriff’s deputy trying to get a groundhog out of a roadway, where it was backing up traffic on Monday. Justyna Olkowska, the woman talking over the video, soon turns from a giggling OMG to a gasping one as she films the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office deputy eventually shoot and kill the animal as it advances toward him. The Baltimore Sun reports the first shot didn’t stop the animal from moving, so the deputy fired a second one and then returned to his car. WBAL reports the Humane Society later retrieved the remains but does not plan to test them for disease.
