Some ranchers in S.D. seek to control prairie dogs

And by “control,” they mean “kill.” Many obstinate humans just can’t seem to grasp the notion that wildlife do not pay heed to human-created political boundary lines, like the border between a national park and privately owned ranch land next to it. And that goes a long ways toward explaining why so many wildlife species, like the prairie dog, are in population trouble. It isn’t rocket science. This article explores the latest “debate,” this time in South Dakota. I’d bet that this article was spurred along by a prairie dog-hating rancher.
