Groundhog Shuts Down Rose Hill Elementary Playground

Authorities kept children inside after large, 'abnormal acting' groundhog spotted, Washington Post reports.

The incident last Friday prompted a call to police and children were kept inside, the newspaper reported.

If you're out walking and see an animal acting strangely, here are some safety tips to follow.
