Meadow Vole Eating Garden Vegetables: Video — 7 Comments

  1. Several years ago my beet crop was destroyed by Voles. It wasn’t until I started to pull the beets out of the ground that I saw they had been eaten right through the middle. I never saw any activity and the only reason I knew the damage was caused by Voles is because I contacted our local county extension office and they identified the cause. Before your video I didn’t even know what they looked like.

    • Yeah, they definitely do go after roots. They love Jerusalem artichokes and will cache lots of them for future consumption.

    • Glad you enjoyed it, Bob. As much as I hated to lose some of our vegetables, I couldn’t help but be amused and fascinated by these diminutive dynamos!

  2. I just rescued one that I found walking down the middle of the street in the city with a cat close behind. He ran into my yard right passed my dog which he wasn’t afraid of. Took me 2 hrs to get it into my house and into a rabbit cage. It doesn’t have a short tail like it says. Attacks by jumping at you and hissing. Now what do I do with it? There is no way I would ever kill any creature for they all deserve to live. I think I will take it to the country and release it.
