Biologists say the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands' Conata Basin, where the ferret has been reintroduced, is home to the only self-sustaining population in the world.
    after all that trouble with getting back the population from JUST 18 ferrets, now they want to poison their food.
    it's probably bush's fault. he is a cattle rancher after all (they say that prarie dogs compete w/ their cattle)

    ok.. it's not endangered. so let's kill them.

    Actually, most of the plants in my garden are natives [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Now, since when is putting a bunch of poison in the environment not going to hurt the environment? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    I sure understand the prarie dog problem, but can't they at least use gas or something? Or issue prarie dog hunting licenses to all the young boys in town [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    the poison is targeted for prarie deogs witch have by far the highest likelyhood of ingesting the special poison. A gas will indesciminatly kill anything living in the burrows, including all the rare species dependent upon the prarie dgs for their survival
    that makes no logic

    besides, it's like roundups. Not only prarie dogs live there but burrowing owls, tortoises, snakes, etc. etc. etc.

    I hear that prarie dogs actually good in that the burrows open up the soil and allow for better circulation.

    I think the main concern is that cattle or whatever might ste in and injure themselves?

    This is one of those animals I say just had it coming with our way of life-just like the birds that lived on islands, our Cp's, the big carnivores or whatever gets in the way of people and needs important resources/habitat.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis
