Dear friends,
This photo taken in HHNP at 7:45am Monday Sept 30 by John Case.  Trap is locked 
closed at both ends and has been rolled onto its side.  Bait spilled from trap 
visible in left foreground.  There are NO dead prairie dogs in any of the traps.  
All traps are sprung closed at both ends, it is impossible for prairie dogs to 
enter traps unless a human re-sets the trap.  Suspect traps were sprung by 
prairie dogs or raccoons trying to get the grain used as bait.  Score remains 
trappers 0, prairie dogs 100.
