Gopher Story

Filed under: Nature,Travel — Connor @ 7:20 am

We set a gopher trap the night before last night and early yesterday morning I got up, got dressed, and went outside to check the gopher trap. AND we caught a gopher. I looked both ways before I went across the road and then I went and told grandpa that we got a gopher and I asked if I could pull the trap up and he said yes. I said, “I’ll just leave it in the trap until you do something with it.” He said he would come over with me right now. So grandpa took the gopher out of the trap and I saved it until Grams and Rowan got up and saw it. Grams took a picture of it.

It was a pocket gopher. It is called a pocket gopher because it has pockets on the side of its mouth and it gets dirt in its pokcetsgopher and then comes up and shoots it out.
