I live in Northern California (Sonoma County) in an area with excessive gopher and mole populations. The soil is sandy loam. My little terrier is a pretty good hunter, but I think I would need 25 of her living on the property at all times. One challenge is that the orchards and vineyards next-door tend to rototill, which sends more gophers my way; I also fear if someone starts poisoning the gophers, and if my terrier happens upon on of them.
Being that the problem is the solution...anyone have ideas?
Thanks!

The problem can be delicious, apparently:  http://uncle-charlie.thoughts.com/posts/fried-gopher
 
I've got no option but to sell you all for scientific experiments. Or a tiny ad:
