I did some research and found out that the groundhog is like a raccoon in what time of day they come out. Just like a raccoon comes out during the day when it's sick, a groundhog comes out at night if it's sick.

Ground hogs are diurnal (active during the daytime). If it is out during the night, something is wrong with it. Raccoons are nocturnal (active during the night time). Raccoons will be out during the day when they have to in search of food and may not necessarily be sick. Don't take a chance and approach any nocturnal animal during the day. It's a good idea not to approach any wild animal any time.
