Should I Stay or Should I Go?

The prairie dog has caused more controversy than any other animal in the town of Telluride. They have taken over a large part of the Valley Floor in the short time that the town has owned the land. Some say they are endangered, some just want to shoot them. I just like taking photos of them with their mouths open mid-chirp.

Ranchers want to rename the prairie dog the prairie rat to make it easier to gather public support for steps to reduce their number.
