Killing prairie dogs is a sport. I live near there and know some of those people and they do it for fun. I am not saying everyone does but everyone I know who shoots them are doing it for fun. It's disgusting!

If there are really that many prairie dogs that they are considered a nuisance, killing a few won't solve the problem as they will thrive again. Something is wrong with the food chain here and more predators need to be introduced into the area to balance things out without human intervention. Unfortunately, one of the best predators are snakes which people are probably killing with even more prejudice.

Appalling. The authorities would rather see all these animals massacred than allow the humane relocation of the colonies and family groups tp another area. What is wrong with these people?

Get the AF base [Cannon Air Force Base] to support prairie dogs. AFB is Federal. Most locals will listen to local base commander or someone in Command. Even just few Airmen in uniform probably would get attention.

WHY THAT IS SO TOTALLY NOT FAIR BULL SHIT !

May God bless you all people who care and mind about God's creatures.....yes Peggie, you are right! GOD NEVER MITAKES HIMSELF! Let's pray so all the people in Clovis reconsider about their evil plan to kill all those wonderful creatures. They exist for some reason, and they deserve to live. Who told human beings that we are the owners of the earth and all of its creatures? That is pure arrogance! I will keep on praying so we, humans, can understand this!

The reason these dogs are stray is because man doesn't take care of their pets.

They're not pets. They are wild little animals the make burrows in farmers fields. And of course the farmers are not too good at living with "nature" So, as per usual they want to eliminate the prairie "dog"

They are prairie dogs, not regular dogs, but still have the right to live in "THEIR" habitat. Leave them alone or at least have the decency to move them somewhere else if possible.

Prairie dogs deserve a place to live, just like any other creature on this earth. Oh, wait a minute, are they bothering humans? Are they considered, by some, a nuisance?? Oh well, then by all means, let's eradicate them because that's the simplest thing to do. Pretty soon the only nature we're going to have left will live in zoos. Human beings are, by far, the most selfish, self-serving creatures on this planet and we will NEVER LEARN to do the right thing!
