After a scary ordeal, one little South Jersey groundhog has become one of Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge’s newest patients.

The baby groundhog had been orphaned and attacked by a dog before being brought to the wildlife hospital. But don’t worry – the refuge says the groundhog is now feeling much better and is expected to make a full recovery.

In New Jersey, possessing or keeping wildlife as a pet is illegal – even if the animal is hurt. Injured, orphaned or ill wildlife must be taken directly to a permitted wildlife rehabilitator, such as Cedar Run. Last year, the refuge rehabilitated more than 4,700 injured animals.
