They could chuck flowerbeds, even undermine foundations with their digging. So the state is striking back with a proposal to establish a hunting and trapping season. So the question now is, how many woodchucks could a woodchuck hunter hunt if a woodchuck hunter could hunt woodchucks? You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
