a large muscaria that something had obviously nibbled. About 40 yards away, in the same field, I observed a badly disoriented groundhog. It was just sort of slowly lumbering about, seemingly uninterested in my presence.

get away with eating deadly Amanitas. I am aware of dogs eating them and getting sick quickly and surviving. Possibly eating them raw led to the life saving quick vomiting?
