A while back someone posted inquiring where they could find prairie dogs in Albuquerque, and this is sort of an extension of that.
Next time y'all are headed east on I-40, get off at Eubank and hope you get a red light. Get in the left-most turning lane and look left. You should see a sizable prairie dog community. These guys have been here several years but I can't help noticing that they are becoming more and more gregarious (read aggressive). When two prairie dogs noticed I was looking at them, they came right up to my truck and pointed their noses at me, presumably as a gesture indicating they wanted me to feed them. They basically did everything except hold up a sign saying "Will display rodent behavior for food".
So next time you're in the heights and you want a laugh, check out these little urbanized prairie dogs--just don't feed them. Seems to me, that is not such a good idea.
