Cedar City didn’t make FOXNews but our (far smaller) county seat of Parowan did, as well as a village called Paragonah that neighbors it.
The problem is the formerly endangered Utah Prairie Dog — upgraded to threatened in the 1980’s.
You see, the cute little threatened creatures happen to be thriving … just about everywhere. Come out for a visit and I’ll show you a few hundred.
FWIW: a single one of these social and colonial animals appeared, sans burrow, sans flat grassland environment, in the lush sprinkler-watered grass of our walled backyard about 6 years ago. No clue how it got there … the nearest colony is about 2 miles down the mountain.
