Daily Sun Letter: Golf Anyone?

Print Email

To the editor:

Concerning Habitat Harmony's comments on the poor prairie dog, two out of three comments were correct.

1. False --They provide food for a variety of predators. In the nine years I have lived at my residence, I have yet to see anything try to make them a meal.

2. True -- Their burrows provide shelter for many other animals. Yes, other disease-carrying rodents.

3. True -- Their burrowing and grazing activities have important effects on prairie landscapes. Without lifting a finger, I now have an 18-hole (plus some) golf course on my property.

Golf, anyone?
