Frederick readies to push out prairie dogs
Frederick plans to kill off its two largest prairie dog colonies starting March 5, at a cost of up to $20,000. And before then -- the date hasn't yet been set -- town officials will meet with the neighbors of the to-be-treated land, to see if they also want to hire the same exterminator at the same rates -- $2.60 per burrow in most areas, or $7.50 ...

This eradication is not for development. The mayor of Frederick claims this is a public health issue. But research found that sprinkling pesticide on the colony eliminates fleas and stops the spread of disease within colonies. This is a cheap and effective solution if this is truly a public health issue. There is currently a petition against this action at change.org if you'd like to sign and share it with others:

I have given up on mankind. I now know why I will not support Colorado tourism. It is determined to kill wildlife that once roamed the prairies. By killing species that are deemed unnecessary by politicians endangers the fragil eco-system that is
failing, ever so quickly.
Myths by ignorant people prevail. Instead of educating themselves about the species, they follow a road that will someday end in ruin.
Leave the Prairie Dogs alone.
