TROY, Mich. - Police questioned a woodchuck that was rescued after being hit by a vehicle Wednesday afternoon in Troy about the amount of wood he can chuck.
Afternoon shift officers responded to a crash at Stephenson Highway and Rochester Road where they found the woodchuck cowering under a car after it had been struck during the crash.
The animal, identified as Woody, was lured out from under the vehicle using "some inventive techniques" and was secured in a crate.
One of the officers took him home overnight and turned him over to a local wildlife rehab Thursday to begin recovery.
In regards to the interrogation, Woody said he can chuck as much wood as a woodchuck can chuck.
Kudos to afternoon shift for their lifesaving rescue of Woody, a Troy woodchuck. Woody was hit by a car, but is now with a wildlife rescue. pic.twitter.com/Dcc9Gts4ZM— Troy Police Dept. (@TroyMI_Police) April 20, 2017
