LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Art museums often toil to capture master works to hang on their walls.

But recently, a museum in northwest Arkansas has been trying to capture something else: groundhogs.

The pesky critters presented a problem for groundskeepers at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art when they started digging tunnels on the gift shop's eco-friendly "green roof."

So, workers at the museum, which was established by Wal-Mart heiress Alice Walton, lured the animals into cages using lettuce and hauled them off to the woods.
