We got gophers. The whole county has gophers. It's bad. The critters are making a mess in the farmers' fields. They burrow under the roads and cause big ol' potholes.
I do my fair share getting those gopher critters that are around my area.
I was out checking out the field where the farmer has planted wheat. Somebody put up a little blue flag. There was a hole there. Gopher was down there. Last evening after it was time for me and my 2 sisters to go into the garage for the night, there was a black feral tomcat checking out that hole with a flag. I could see him through the window in my garage in case you are wondering how I knew he was out there.
Turns out some guys came around this morning and checked on the gopher trap they put down the hole and marked with a blue flag. They took that gopher out of the hole. He was in a little trap. They pitched him into the back of their pickup truck. Now they are out checking other traps or else they are setting up more traps.
What a pathetic way to catch a gopher.
