Keystone Prairie Dogs, They're a Lot Like People

But They Can't Shoot Back

by Jean Williams

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Many excellent science-based publications have been written about prairie dogs, but the aim of this series of three eBooks is the use of levity to do away with decades of misleading information.


The series will highlight the fact that prairie dogs are similar to people in many ways and will use funny pictures, with playful captions and humorous parody to broaden the conversation and reach a more general and varied audience. The books will also include the “serious” message that prairie dogs are in peril in the wild, dispel myths with facts, provide content from wildlife biologists, provide a list of important resources and give a call-to-action request. If you like tongue-in-cheek parodies and funny pictures of cute animals, this book is a must-read for you. If you want to learn more about a very misunderstood and vital prairie species, this book is also a must-read for you. Keystone prairie dogs live in family units, just like people. Their underground homes have separate chambers for a nursery, potty, sleeping and most have a back door. Each prairie dog has a distinctly different personality. Some are gregarious and playful, while others are more serious and reserved. They have daily chores and jobs, just like human folk. And they talk to each other through body language and a series of vocalizations…some loud, some quiet and some playful…just like people. You will laugh, when you see the humorous pictures and you will cry, when you see how much mankind has hoisted undeserved malicious persecution upon this innocent species.
