  1. What? Are the ground rats visiting a goober zoo?

    Just go prairie dog fishing, then you don’t have to worry about the firing line. For the uninitiated, prairie dog fishing is easy, fun, and profitable. Just get yourself a good deep sea fishing rod and real. Use about a foot of steel leader (they’ll bite through the soft stuff) and a good treble hook. Bait it with a piece of greasy pork or cheap bacon (prairie dogs are carnivorous and love pork when they can get it) and cast it out into the middle of the prairie dog village. They’ll run away at first, they’re pretty skittish, but after a short while the smell of the pork will get to them and they’ll start inching towards the bait. Be patient, any movement will send them scurrying back to their burrows. After a bit, one of the braver (or hungrier) little rodents will run out, grab the bait, and stuff it in his mouth. Being the greedy little critters they are, he’ll take off running and swallow the bait whole to keep it away from the others. Give him plenty of line and time to get up a full head of steam. When he’s swallowed it and is running full blast, set the brake and yank back on the rod. This’ll pop him inside out and you’ll have a nice fur lined moccasin. Keep fishing and once you have a nice pair for yourself, you can sell the rest to the tourists.

    I’ve seen something like that before, but can’t recall if it was at The Desert Museum in Tucson; the Tucson Zoo, or the Phoenix Zoo.

    They certainly look well fed!
