This evening while driving around and looking at cows, Gramma and I found a roaming prairie dog….the hunt was on! With no gun (why? I don’t know!) I tried to drive over him but he was too quick…so I tried siccing dogs on him but all they saw was cows to chase, so while hollering at one dog to come back and the other to lie down, all the while running a foot and chasing the p dog, I thought of my belt knife. I threw and nicked him. He had stopped and was trying to blend into the grass but sadly for him, there is very little tall grass this year! Ha! So I kept chasing and calling dogs with an occasional knife throw… I got him pretty solid and finally he stopped to put up a fight… he lost, I won… Ha!

Now, for all you furry animal fans who think I am cruel I have several points to make out…

A. I am a predator just like anything else who would have tried to kill him
B. If you think it is wrong to kill a fuzzy little animal that can over populate in the wink of an eye and make lots of problems, don’t you ever set another mouse trap, have a cat or dog who will catch mice or ever put out or use mouse or rat poison ever again..
C. I got a great cardio workout in the chase and I think that is probably more important than one stinkin’ p dog..
D. I did not rise up to the top of the food chain to allow a p dog and his buddies to over populate my land that I bought and paid for, pay taxes on and raise food to feed you and the rest of the world, on…
E. If you like fuzzy little creatures so much, I suggest you go buy some land and turn it over to the fuzzy little animals, but if you let p dogs get over run on it don’t be surprised if your neighbors all take you to court and sue you for wanton disregard for their land when your p dogs travel to their land and set up house keeping…

Last branding for a few days today, good crew, good day and great food! Supposed to be a chance of rain thru’ at least Tuesday, according to my weather chart…we sure need it!
