Everybody's gotta have somewhere warm to sleep, even rodents, but this is pretty bizarre.
Fredericksburg officials say one of their dens caused the sinkhole Sunday night on Canal Street, near Princess Anne Street. Workers found a 2'x-4' hole that was about 2 feet deep. It looked like some sort of rodent had eaten its way through the sewer line to build the den. Yesterday crews started repairs. It was done and repaved by yesterday afternoon.
