Dear editor:

Regarding "Hunter Says Don't Listen To The Critics: "Prairie Dogs Are Good To Eat!" on Oct. 9, 2023.

Mr. Jasmer must have used a lot of “zesty Italian marinade”.

I have had prairie dog; we had a prairie dog town in the north pasture that bordered a neighbor’s pasture.

We would have to thin out the prairie dogs so they wouldn’t get too troublesome.

Out of curiosity, Mom cooked up one and we ate it. Never again will I eat another prairie dog.

Disgusting! Vile, even.

I enjoy wild game, but I draw the line at prairie dogs. Greasy, and the taste…! Ugh!
