Naturally—because this is Santa Fe and this is what we do, dammit—prairie dogs are
. On one side, there are those who wish to feed and perhaps snuggle the critters (a rodent by any other name...). Others wish to move them to
where there's nary a McDonald's in sight. Fortunately for everyone involved, another solution has come into the mix:
Matt Lynch sends us this photo from the
(population 696 and dropping!), where folks know that the only sensible thing to do with
methed-out prairie dogs
is eat them, presumably with corn on the cob and a palate accustomed to such fineries as dandelion hooch. This way, people can both feed (
read: fatten up
) the prairie dogs and avoid expensive relocation costs.
