Opinion: What should be done about prairie dogs?


I was quite seriously wondering what could be done about the extreme prairie dog presence at the Eco Park in Taos. What started as a few cute critters, has now blossomed into quite the problem. They are everywhere in that area! Considering the fact that kids play at the soccer field, as well as countless folk use the trail that encircles it to take a stroll, or walk their dog. As well as the fact that these critters are ruining the vegetation that the city so carefully planted near the trail. These critters pose a big worry. I was wondering if you could post it as one of your weekly queries of the public. Like.."What would you recommend be done with the Prairie Dog problem at the Eco Park?"
