I have met the enemy, and he is woodchuck.

Marmota monax – also known as Sorry Bastard.

I did not take this picture but I have seen this creature in my back yard and, given how high the leaves are that have been devoured, I have concluded he is the culprit. He has now eaten 75% of the leaves from my squash, and worse, he has destroyed my second planting of cucumbers. Defensive measures are called for. The first step was to spray the remains with Liquid Fence.

Ravaged by a heinous monster.
