There are some problems in life that we just can't solve on our own.
David Crawford, founder of Animal Help Now, got a call from a woman in Colorado who was concerned about a prairie dog stuck in a drain pipe on her property. This time of year, male prairie dogs often migrate to other colonies, and can sometimes get a little lost along the way.
"This prairie dog had been scratching at her front door, and she noticed he had an injured front paw," Crawford told The Dodo. "She came outside and watched him run away to the corner of her courtyard and crawl down a four-and-a-half-inch drainage pipe because it looked a lot like a burrow entrance."
