Pocket Gopher Capture!


Tonight while watering my new baby plants I noticed some fresh gopher holes in the lawn. About three months ago a “pocket gopher” started ripping up our lawn with a little help from Max freaking out on the holes. Luckily he didn’t hit any of my precious plants, but he’s really been peeving me off. I decided to hit the fresh holes with the hose (pretty aggressively I admit) and he popped out!!!!! I grabbed a basket, threw it over him and started screaming for Matti. We were able to get him in our glass head and relocate him way the heck up past 30th ave. in the park. According to Wikipedia pocket gophers are solitary vermin, so hopefully we are gopher free. I’m still pretty darn amazed I was able to catch him.
