BOONTON, N.J. (AP) - Police in northern New Jersey needed pepper spray to thwart a groundhog on the attack.

Boonton resident Alex Scott told police the rodent chased him when he entered his garage and tried to get his truck.

Police Sgt. Mike Danyo and Officer Paul Ryan said the groundhog went on the attack when they arrived.

Police said Danyo tripped and fell. His partner sprayed pepper spray into the groundhog's face, giving the officers time to snare it.
The animal was euthanized and its remains will be shipped to the state health department for rabies testing.
