Two weeks ago on Saturday my daughter, she is 6, begged to go to a place that has hay rides to pick your own pumpkin. She is finally big enough to help carve a pumpkin so I decided we would buy a pair of big Pumpkins and carve one that day and then carve the second the Saturday before Haloween.

We carved the Jack-O-lantern and it really came out great, I will have to get a picture uploaded of it as I did take a picture before Peter the Pumpkin eater got it!

Well, this past Saturday we were at a birthday party and came home to discover something gad started eating her Pumpkins. The picttures that follow are from Monday afternoon so this is just over 2-days feeding by ONE animal! We have a CCTV security system so I have video of the guilty party! Go ahead and guess what might have done this and then watch the video posted below!

NOTE - these pumpkins are big! The photos make them look smaller then they are!

Following is what WAS my daughter's Vampire Jac-O-Lantern!

OK, so Peter the pumpkin eater was there yesterday and this time he crawled INSIDE the Jack-O-Lantern!

Here is a video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-6ha0qZWYY

He comes and eats every hour or so during the day but after 5PM or so he doesn't come back so I am not able to get him after work ––- YET!

No, just a VERY well fed groundhog! I have watched a lot of the video from the CCTV system and I am convinced all of this was done by just one groundhog. I am also convinced that if I fed him some spices I could through him in the oven and make a Pumpkin Pie with a hairball crust!

now teach your daughter how to varmint hunt...and explain to her why people varmint hunt using the pumpkin as an example....

Have some fun with the varmit.... go buy a rotting pumpkin or some other fruit and let it sit up a while. After it ferments, set it out, woodchuck eats it, gets drunk, hilarity ensues!

Then curb stomp the little bastard when you've got enough video of him.

Squirrels here do not touch the pumpkins, but they did eat an entire ornamental cabbage we planted.

Cute little bastard. Kill it.

How's a 22-250 work at short range???

I have thought about making a new smaller jack-o-lantern for inside the one that is carved out... Just need to kill Pete before we put out any more pumpkins!

Before going past the OP or watching the video, I'm calling squirrel shenanigans.

ETA: Darn, wrong rodent!

Seems like a good time to introduce the daugher to a pellet rifle and why some critters need to be deaded. Then again, she might get the wrong message "If something pisses you off, kill it!"

nothing a little bit of anti freeze in the pumpkin won't cure

Damnit. I posted almost this exact thing to the Youtube comments before reading down this far.

Wasn't trying to steal your idea, just great minds thinking alike and all.

We put a few pumpkin seeds in our garden this year and grew 3 really nice big pumpkins. About two months ago the little bastard ground hog up the hill came down one morning and destroyed two of them. He came down for the third the next day and got hit with a small projectile moving at over 3000fps.
