The Pontotoc County Sheriff's Department in Mississippi is hoping to catch a groundhog with a history of attacking people. Sheriff Leo Mask says the latest incident happened on Sunday.
One woman says she was scratched on the leg during an attack on the porch of a home. The sheriff adds the animal then went inside and bit another woman.
One of the women, who did not want to be identified, said she went to a medical clinic for treatment of her injuries and was given a tetanus shot.
Mask says the investigation has turned up other people who say they have been attacked by the animal as well.
He says deputies have set a trap in hopes of catching the groundhog.
