The Holes

Something has been digging holes in our yard. Lots of holes, dozens. The same for our next door neighbor. We have had flickers dig there, but their holes are not this extensive. We asked our neighbor what he thinks, and he told us he thinks it is a skunk digging for moles. We do have skunks once in awhile, and I know they have long sharp claws and dig. What do YOU think it is?? I wish we knew!

I wouldn't have a clue what it would be. I didn't even realize that skunks dug holes. That makes them even more annoying, not only smelling bad but digging up a lawn.

I hope you find out!

I have no idea, so interesting, maybe you will be able to take a photo of that creature☺

they look like the holes our raccoons dig, but I can't tell what size yours are. ours are about 3 to 4 inches, also our squirrels dig tiny holes. the best bet is to say a wildlife critter is doing the digging...

I’m not much help...I have no idea what could be digging those holes. Groundhogs? I absolutely love the quote about being a puzzle piece.

I'm guessing that whoever it is is nocturnal otherwise you would have caught them at it. Thankfully we don't have skunks over here, I hear they are smelly. lol

We had these one time and my dad told me they were made by a skunk.

Do y'all have raccoons up in your area? This is what our yard looks like when raccoons are out digging. These creatures can sure make a big mess

I would think it could be moles. Once they start they just keep on digging.

I haven't seen those before and don't have a clue. I've seen the holes moles dig. What I did notice was what beautiful red soil you have.
