The "Rodenator" is an Explosive Issue in Boulder Colorado
Boulder Colorado is famous for its left leaning politics and perhaps is lesser known for its Wildlife Protection Ordinances for the prairie dog. Given that the city has ordinances that mandates an "adequate plan designed to prevent the reentry of prairie dogs onto the land after the prairie dogs are lawfully removed" it should come as no surprise that some residents are upset over the use of the "Rodenator" in neighboring Boulder county just outside the bounds of Boulder city limits. Boulder's Daily Camera has a write up and a video on the situation.
Residents in a north Boulder neighborhood found themselves awoken Tuesday morning by what has become a familiar and terrifying sound -- prairie dog burrows being blown up by a device known as the "Rodenator." "Kids at the end of the cul-de-sac actually saw some prairie dogs on fire, running and screaming," Leslie Middleton said of a previous Rodenator sweep.
