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!
Killing for fun is barbaric. The prairie dogs had a new home and the idiots in Clovis would rather slaughter these sweet animals. This is what is happening all over the world, no compassion shown. Sad situation.
Did they violate any open meetings law? I know PETA is a real "hot button" word with people, especially ranchers, but could they help -- maybe help find another place for the animals to be relocated and even help with funding? It is worth asking. This is definitely animal abuse if they are going to be gassed in October. Check the national PETA website for how to contact them if you suspect abuse and go from there, maybe?
NO! MORE! WOLF TRAPPING!!!!
Abuse to these animals tge ones that need yo be killed are the humans doing this all animal killers need to be killed as they are pure evil and what next a child a woman a man if you can do such evil to a living animal who feels pain and has a hart you can do it to a hunan thats hiw serial killers start by killing animals
