How poisoning prairie dogs allowed 60 million cans of pet food to be recalled!
There is stronger and stronger evidence among environmental scientists that
prairie dog towns draw moisture because they restore a harmonic balance with the
We have within the earth surface magnetic lines which appear on a map in a
formation something like a checkerboard.
They occur about every 10 ft. and are about ten inches wide. They run north and
south, east and west. These magnetic fields are essential toward our health and
German doctors called certain houses "cancer houses" because everyone who lived
in them over the centuries developed chronic diseases These chronic diseases
have been attributed to the exposure of the unfortunate victim of disease to an
area where the earth’s grid was in a magnetic imbalance. These imbalances
usually occurred under the houses in which the unfortunate sufferers of disease
This magnetic balance theory is known to scientists today. Nassau built magnetic
fields into the space crafts so the astronauts would stay healthy.
There are many things that the average person does not understand. Some of these
things have been known to the indigenous populations of the United States years
before the European population set foot on American soil.
For example, the American Indians had great respect and reverence for their
fellow prairie dog: "The Cheyenne Indians sang songs to the Prairie Dog; the
Arapaho tribe thought so highly of them that one of their family groups was
called 'Those of the Prairie Dog.' The Apaches and Navajos associated Prairie
Dogs with rain and water, believing that their burrows were 'breathing tubes'
that helped to connect to underground water or create rain." ( April/May/June
2005 edition of the Sierra).
One can only marvel at this primitive understanding of the prairie dog habitat.
We now understand that indeed, there is a sophisticated ventilation system in
the prairie dog tunnel. This is now commonly known due to public television
programs which feature animals who have a sophisticated engineering agenda. (
See Modern Marvel’s: Nature’s engineers 02/2007).
The Chinese understood the earth’s geomantic grid systems and the earth’s
vortexes hundred’s of years ago. Instructed missionaries on places
disadvantageous to home building. They cautioned that an unfavorable spot, i.e.
a spot where the magnetic grid was imbalanced was, "in the path of the dragon.
This was considered paganism in previous centuries but today scientific research
bears out the truth that there are unfavorable areas of magnetic imbalance where
one should not consider building a home.
We can now learn the benefit the prairie dog contributes to restoring moisture
to the earth and harmonizing the balance of the magnetic vortex.
Logan County is supposed to have the highest number of prairie dogs in western
Kansas, according to Logan County Commissioner Carl Ulrich. Is it just an
accident that last year Logan County had the highest precipitation out of 24
western Kansas counties except for two counties, who have just two inches more
than Logan County? (National Climatic Data Center.www.crh.noaa.gov)
All positive information about prairie dogs notwithstanding, Logan County is now
enforcing a 1909 Kansas state statute which gives the county permission to come
on our property in Logan county, and poison Prairie dogs and then the state
bills the farmers for labor and poison. ( 80-1202 ) What will happen when the
prairie dogs are gone? Will precipitation drop in Logan County from 23 inches to
below 18 inches a year? Will we have less grass and will our fields support
fewer cattle? Will the state administration then blame this situation on the few
prairie dogs that are left? We have already seen the result of tampering with
the eco-system by killing other animals only to learn, too late, that the
animals performed benefits to the eco-system previously unknown or ignored. Will
the prairie dog suffer the same fate as these unfortunate animals we are trying
to bring back into existence?
It is illegal and a federal crime to kill a black-footed ferret, an endangered
species that feeds almost exclusively on prairie dogs. This ferret is being
poisoned with the prairie dogs in the barrels. (U.S. Fish & Wildlife 970,
243-2778). One can see that this is a "catch 22 situation." Left to itself, the
ferret would keep the prairie population in check. However, because of the
poisoning of the prairie dogs, ferrets and prairie dogs are being killed
indiscriminately with no thought to the eco-system.
Does the Federal Law have precedence over the 1909 Kansas statute? Someone needs
to tell Logan County to quit using an out-dated statute to force the land owners
into distributing poisons onto their property.
Prairie dogs can talk
Animal Behaviorist Dr. Slobodchikoff of Northern Arizona University says,
"Prairie dogs can talk." (From the Albuquerque Journal The Associated Press Dec.
3 2004) He maintains that prairie dogs can convey complex information through a
language more sophisticated than that of many other animals that have been
studied. Slobodchikoff has documented more than 100 prairie dog words. From his
observation tower on the edge of a prairie dog colony outside Flagstaff,
Slobodchikoff operates a directional microphone, a tape recorder and a video
camera. From this vantage point, he can spot intruders, such as hawks, cats,
dogs, and men and he can record the alarm calls these potential threats trigger
in the prairie dogs.
"Each time we do experiments I’m surprised because each time even I don’t think
these animals have the capabilities that our experiments show them to have."
Back at his lab he digitizes his audio field tape into sonograms which show what
each alarm call "looks" like, complete with adjectives. The professor has
discovered that prairie dogs use adjectives to differentiate objects. For
example, they can describe the color of clothes on a human and whether he is
tall or short. They can also describe how fast a man is moving or whether he is
carrying a gun. And there’s evidence that the prairie dogs can remember that
specific person for up to two months.
When Western Kansas counties force prairie dog poisoning on its landowners, they
also force the landowner to help destroy over 200 other living creatures.
We could write a sci-fi movie scrip on what could happen if the prairie dog
perishes from the earth. I would not push the edge of the envelope of
possibilities by suggesting the effect of killing necessary species such as the
prairie dogs, and a link toward global warming. There might very well be a link
to the dust bowls of the dirty thirties. Who knows? When a society destroys a
cornerstone of harmonic balance for the purpose of their own greed, it is
anyone’s guess where we will come out in the matrix of life.
There is strong evidence that prairie dogs have an awareness of the existence of
God as their creator. They have a form of praise and worship. Is the human race
the only creation on earth which have a awareness of God? The apostle John had a
vision from God of what heaven would be like. John wrote in Revelation 5: 11-14:
" In my vision, I heard the sound of an immense number of angels gathered around
the throne and the animals and the elders; there were thousand times ten
thousand of them …shouting, The lamb that was sacrificed is worthy to be given
power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and blessing. Then I heard all the
living things in creation---everything that lives in the air, and on the ground
and under the ground and in the sea crying, ‘To the one who is sitting on the
throne and to the lamb, be all praise, honor, glory and power, for ever and
Wildlife Artist Pat Morris Painted this picture as she observed a Prairie dog
Animals, unlike some humans, just know who the creator is and have no problem
worshiping him. They don’t have a problem intellectualizing the creator away in
a big bang theory . This is why you will see many pictures of prairie dogs like
the ones above.
"His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise." Habakkuk
3:3 Also, "Let every thing that hath breath praise the lord." Bible Psalm 150:6
What are the Myths that would have us believe in the extinction of the prairie
dog , an important element in God’s creation?
MYTH: Prairie Dogs Are Everywhere
Actually, black-tailed prairie dogs occupy less than one percent of the land
they occupied a century ago. (Rocky Mountain Animal Defense of Boulder CO.)
MYTH: Prairie Dogs Multiply Like Rabbits
In reality, black-tailed prairie dogs have a low rate of reproduction compared
with other small mammals. They breed only once a year, and the average litter
size is three to four pups.
MYTH: Prairie Dogs Spread the Plague
In fact, prairie dogs rarely transmit plague to humans. This disease does pose a
significant threat to prairie dog populations. Because prairie dogs lack
immunity to plague, a plague epidemic will kill almost 100 percent of a
population. Prairie dogs usually die within a week after contact with the plague
bacterium. Other mammals, such as mice and rats, carry the plague.
MYTH: Prairie Dogs and Cattle Can't Coexist
Contrary to what many farmers, ranchers and the livestock industry assert,
prairie dogs and cattle have a mutually beneficial relationship. Prairie dogs
improve the forage for cattle, and cattle grazing allows prairie dog colonies to
expand in mid-grass prairie. Both cattle and prairie dogs have demonstrated a
preference for grazing together, just as bison and prairie dogs have
historically preferred each other's company. The Journal of Range Management has
published several articles that confirm these findings.
MYTH: No One Will Miss Prairie Dogs When They're Gone
Those who directly depend on prairie dogs–ferruginous hawks, burrowing owls,
golden eagles, coyotes, and black-footed ferrets, to name a few would miss them
Ferrets inhabit prairie dog burrows and depend on prairie dogs for more than 95
percent of their dietary needs. The war against the black-tailed prairie dog,
which began at the beginning of the twentieth century, is the main reason the
black-footed ferret is endangered.
The swift fox and the hawk also depend on prairie dogs for food, and their
numbers have declined along with the prairie dogs. The mountain plover and
burrowing owl depend on the habitat prairie dogs create, and their numbers have
also declined throughout their ranges. There are many others–small mammals,
birds, reptiles, amphibians, plants, and insects–whose worlds are crumbling as
prairie dogs and their towns continue to be destroyed.
This is not an article by one of the "green movements" in the U.S. This is just
a discussion about the advantages of keeping the prairie dog population in
Northwest Kansas . Another way of destroying the family farm is by putting it
into the hands of the corporate farming.. I was involved in the American
Agricultural movement, and lobbied the capital for parity in grain prices.
The Colorado Cattlemen’s Association tells us it cost us 37 per head if we have
One would have you think that if you had Prairie dog s one needs to build a bomb
shelter and the children need to learn civil defense drills at school.
What we are not being told is what the extinction of the prairie dog is doing to
the water table . The water table is dropping to the point that the state has
considered banding farm irrigation.
Without Prairie dogs and their massive tunnel structure. Rain and snow cannot
enter the ground water. This water supplies drinking wells and lakes and
Lake Ogallala in Nebraska is not receiving any new ground water and is at an all
time low. New wells are being drilled because old ones are drying up.
Black Diamond was dumping their poison in and around prairie dog tunnels that
were over the Smokey Hills Water Shad. The water table there was only around 15
feet deep. Smokey hills Water shad flows through Colby Oakley, Hays, Russia and
Salina and all the towns in-between.
There seems to be an epidemic of being tired all the time. Everyone you talk to
has the same complaint. Is this due to the poisoning of our water table? How
would one go about proving such a belief?
Though we cannot prove it, our foundation research leads to a strong theory of
how the poison got into the Pet food and caused 60 million cans of dog food to
be recalled and it has to do with poising the prairie dogs.
It started almost a century ago when like other states, Kansas passed a law in
1909 . (KSA 80-1202 ) that gives counties the power to force the farmers and
ranchers to poison Prairie dogs on their land. If the ranchers refuse to do so,
the county will poison prairie dogs at a cost of $20 to $30 per acre to and the
rancher hast to pick up the bill. Logan County has 357,000 acres.
Now lets go back to Logan County Kansas. Remember this is being repeated in
multiple counties in several Surrounding States over millions of acres in what
is now called the Short Grass prairies of the US.
This is how our research shows the way Rodent poison enters the animal food
Black Diamond paid the state $140. Then they took a few tests and got a license
permitting them to poison Prairie dog holes. Black Diamond then hired a bunch of
locals, and gave them four wheelers. These recruits dumped the poison in and
around the holes and anywhere else so to make them look like they are doing
their job. Well they got busted and had to pay a fine of $2800.00 and they were
sent back to Wyoming to muck up another state’s food chain. The ranchers are
being jack booted by the county and into paying $20 or $30 dollars per acre,
when the rancher can buy poison in Wynona, Kansas spread it himself to keep the
county off his back.
Being forced to poison their own land, and being billed for this action by the
county has caused the farmers to become annoyed with the system. They then
created bait stations which are PVC pipes filled with poison grain. Can one
imagine what can happen to the 200 other animals and cattle when we know these
pipes are open to any animals that can get near them? Though ignorance this is
been going on in several states for years. Before December 19 of 06 the pets
just died and it was diagnosed as joint weakness.
December 19 and December 29 of 06 is where the Pet food poising really started.
Kansas has two of the worst blizzards in its history. Because the snow did not
melt the cattle were kept from grazing for 90 days
The hungry cow or cows found one of many bait stations filled with poison grain.
Like the Prairie Dog they ate and were filled and fell over dead.
The snow melted and the rendering truck picked up the frozen cattle, took it
their rendered plant, then sold it sold it to Menu Foods of Emporia Kansas Menu
Foods which made the frozen cattle into 95 different Dog foods which caused the
recall of 60 million cans of dog and cat food and a nation filled with burring
the dead pets. The American Trail Foundation has filed Pesticide Complaint
report with Jerry Wilson of Kansas department of Agriculture on at least eight
different bait stations. Jerry Wilson personally told me that unless a complaint
is personally signed, no investigation will be done with the Department of
We don’t need any more green movements or laws passed. We only need to
understand what may be hurting us, and why. Remember the three great lies. The
check is in the mail, I will respect you in the morning and I work for the
government and I am interested in your health.
