Yesterday, I was outside walking around picking up debris from our recent snow and ice storm, when I felt something following me. I looked down, and this really big Pocket Gopher was creeping along about a foot behind me. I stopped, it stopped. I started walking again, and so did it. It didn’t look injured so I could not figure out why it was out of the ground.
I tried to gently herd it back to a protected area, but it just kept by me. My dogs were in the house, or it would have really been in danger.
This went on for about 30 minutes, until I finally moved it under a huge pile of limbs from the storm. It went under and I did not see it come out again.
Maybe he knew I wouldn’t hurt him??? This is the second time this year this has happened. If I could just get them to follow me out of my garden, I would really have some nature power…
Lucky for me I had my camera on the porch so I got a great photo of him.
Goodbye my little friend…
