1-2 foot hole at tree base
Just got home and noticed a large 1-2ft hole dug at the base of our huge fir tree There is a soil pile left in front of hole Haven’t seen any unusual animals about. The dog definitely smells something Thanks

You will want to watch for further evidence of what has created the hole, such as scat, fresh tracks, and if you have a game/trail camera available, some images. Because you don't know what might be in the hole/den, it would be a good idea to keep the dog restrained from explorations that could bring it nose-to-nose with the den maker's occupant.
