I have a hunter friend who described bringing his wife on a hunt and they came across some prairie dogs. He had his bow with him and when his wife pointed one out he shot it with an arrow and then his wife watched  mortified asthe skewered little guy rebounded repeatedly as he desperately tried to get back in the hole.

Sometimes the world needs sociopaths...

Every summer, my family fights off hordes of these pests. They dig up pasture and crops, leaving holes for animals to fall into and break legs.
There is a 5 acre field where our horses graze that is cleared of prairie dogs every June, and every June there are roughly 200-300 of these 'cute' rodents packed into that small area.
You shoot one, and two more pop out of a hole and start eating their dead comrade. You shoot those two, and four more start eating them. Soon, the bodies are piling up around the holes and you can only feel a small bit of satisfaction since you know that you'll have to go through the same process next year.

I detest them just as much as mosquitos. If I had a sociopathic friend, I wouldn't need to do all that shooting.

Yeah the holes are a real problem and they multiply like .. rodents.  We need some south americans to move up here and start eating them or something.

I actually had one of these as a pet (among others on the farm) when I was growing up.  It was like having a tiny little wolf in a cage.  It would do that little squeak-howl at the end of this video as a greeting whenever someone opened the door.  It live me and my dad, but HATED everyone else.  He mauled a couple of my friends ankles like a little wolverine.   He also stank pretty bad...  I guess they have scent glands like ferrets.  He was super friendly to people he liked though,  and you could roughhouse with him like a cat.

It is kind of shocking the damage the little buggers do.  I spent some time in Montana a few years ago, and places where the populations were large looked like the surface of the moon.  One rancher I talked to had 10,000 acres that were no longer usable for cattle because of the holes.

Here is a little example that took me about 30 seconds on Google maps to find.

https://maps.google.com/maps?q=billings,+mt&ll=45.753646,-107.764758 &s pn=0.001533,0.002733&hnear=Billings,+Yellowstone,+Montana&t=h&z=19

See all the little bare patches, that sort of look like craters?  Those are Prairie dog holes.

Pan around, you will probably find more pretty easy.

Never mind that - they carry plague. Schriever AFB, Peterson AFB and Buckley AFB close outdoor running paths pretty regularly in spring and summer because of these cute little disease factories.

CSB: Buckley AFB had an infestation near their child development center and the Aerospace Data Facility -- they first tried poisoning them, but PETA got all pissed at that. So, on the recommendation of some other animal rights groups, they hired a company that had a "humane" way to capture and relocate them -- a giant vacuum that sucked them out of their towns and deposited them inside a small padded holding pen. Except that when they tried it, it sucked them up with such force it splattered them all over the inside of the padded holding pens. Most of the ones that survived died of unknown causes, presumably heart attacks from terror.

Now, they just let the falcons, hawks, and rattlesnakes take care of them.

Yea, when I was a kid on the farm, prairie dogs were welcomed by my dad and uncles with a shot to the face.
They were pests.

I live in Montana, and I can tell you they are terribly destructive to farm and ranch land.  Getting rid of them is also almost impossible.  I do know of one rancher who went so far as to pump propane gas down several holes and then light it on fire.

The same rancher allows people to come out to his land and shoot as many of them as they can.  He was going to build a platform so hunters could get above them...they cannibalize each other so there's no need to go pick up what you've shot...   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGFXzNnDo-g">http://www.youtube.com/wa t ch?v=hGFXzNnDo-g
