Prairie dogs rummage historic US cemetery

October 17 2004 at 05:46PM

Santa Fe - A happy colony of New Mexico prairie dogs hit pay dirt in a cemetery full of historic skeletons, causing grief for town officials who want to protect the final resting place of the state's notables.

Prairie dogs are gnawing their way through skeletons in a historic cemetery in Sante Fe that houses the remains of three New Mexico governors, 10 mayors and other notables. They are leaving mounds of dirt mixed with human bones in a 1,6-hectare lot in the heart of the city.

"It's a catastrophe," Erik Mason, president of the Fairview Cemetery Preservation Association, which runs the facility, said on Friday. "I would love to take them out one by one but you can't fire a rifle in the city limits."

The city requires a humane relocation of prairie dogs, but the preservation association does not have enough money to move the large colony.

Mason said he tried different strategies to get rid of the prairie dog invasion, including putting dry ice down the holes and plugging them with newspaper.

"Nothing worked," he said.

The cute critters called prairie dogs are not dogs, but rodents, sold in many places as pets. They typically live in a family group and adults measure between 30cm and 38cm in height.

As most people know, you can not breathe in a vacuum.


Yeah, in an actual vacuum. That doesn't apply to a vacuum CLEANER! What dingus wrote that article?

Well then, we'll have to use a machine gun. Wouldn't want to break the law.

Please notice in the upper left corner of the page that the little design the person has next to the banner of their site says "Targeting Prairie Dog Survival", is a rifle scope with it's crosshairs over the prairie dog! How great is that?

People should go after the little rodents, however, proceed with caution.
