what dug this hole?
I recently had a freshly planted hosta de-planted. Then a few days later I happened to see a skunk walking down my driveway at dusk. Then a few days later I noticed this hole. THis pine is at the edge of the woods and my yard. Do skunks live underground or is that just groundhogs? Do groundhogs pull out plants?
The hosta was about 10'-15' from the hole. The driveway is about 30'-40' away from the hole (passing the hosta on the way).
Of course, there's also the dog. She's been known to dig after voles, but I usually can tell cause she comes in dirty. I don't think she has discovered this area yet.
The hosta that got lifted was not vole-attacked for sure because I put my anti-vole measures in place during planting and the roots were untouched. The plant was just uplifted and moved. I think skunks do that. Not sure.
