Here Be Plague

Filed under: Reflections — ktismatics @ 5:32 pm

You can imagine my chagrin when, on my afternoon run, I saw a sign just like this one posted at the trailhead:

The suspected culprits are these guys:

It’s been my understanding that the local prairie dog population has been riddled with plague for as long as we’ve lived here. I don’t know what’s happened to warrant the new scare tactics — maybe somebody’s pet cat ate a prairie dog and got sick. I went ahead and ran the trail anyway. One of the little critters was lying prone right in the middle of the trail as I approached, but he managed to get himself out of the way before I had to take evasive action.
