Prairie Dog Habits

You may be asking what prairie dogs have to do with food and travel - well, maybe not much, but they make for some very cute pictures.  These furry little guys are all over southwestern Oklahoma, and there are even dedicated 'prairie dog towns' in the park and the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

It's fun to watch them interact and listen as they squeak alarmingly at anyone curious enough to get too close.  Usually these chaps are the picture of innocence, but on our last walk in the park near our Oklahoma home, Matt and I stumbled upon some disturbing scenes:

Somebody has a guilty indulgence...
...and this will make their fur stink!
Oh, say it ain't so!
I sure hope these cute little guys can get their act cleaned up before things go too far!
