On Tower frequency at a rural class Delta:

 Cessna: Uh, tower caution some sort of otter or marmot just went right in front of my plane.

 Tower: It was a groundhog. That is our airport groundhog.

 Cessna: Ok regardless of type he just crossed Alpha without clearance tell him to check his frequency.

 Tower: We'll have a talk with him.  Cleared for takeoff 23.
