Caught in the act

I knew I had another gopher. It'd been a few weeks since I saw a new mound of dirt, but there was a small one on the hill yesterday. I didn't get right on it and sure enough, this morning there was another small one next to it. I didn't wait to finish my cup of coffee - I grabbed my gopher bait and ran out the door. From my patio, I saw the little guy was just in the act of making this tunnel, and dirt was flying out as I watched. Then a sweet little face peered out, saw me, and ducked out of sight. Sweet huh? I work too damn hard in my yard, to turn it over to these destructive fellows. He has to die. I put some pellets down the very accessible burrow.
