Gopher Digging a Hole

Pocket gophers treat my vegetable garden like their own personal Farmers Market.

Is it bad that I don't shed a tear when our cat Joker dines upon a pocket gopher?

One of my co-workers used to refer to the well-known takeaway chain as 'Kentucky Fried Rat'. Probably not original.

IIRC that was because someone claimed that is what they were served.

My dad was a bee keeper, I seen him take his hand into as swarm of them and take out the queen.
he had a hive for her he had ready which had paper with slits in it so she got air and some food.
went back and got of them back near the hive and the just would walk in.
they get the queen through the paper open and the bee's just stayed.

The thing is that the queens were fighting the one that lost was on the tree making for a new home.
He was pretty darn good at it in his spare time.

LOL:)
Only last spring I saw a crow doing the same thing to a dog.
The dog reacted more surprised than annoyed but after some minutes the dog shaked it's body and walked away:)

Works for both the crow and the panda - it's hard for the panda to get rid of loose fur from its rear end, and the crow needs bedding.

Looks like a good picture for caption picture.
