Another prime photo. We had the privilege of working with Ashley this summer. She was a woman possessed and no task could thwart her! A pleasure to work with, highly dependable and very very gentle with the prairie dogs. She loaded 65 prairie dogs on her second day of work at the Sevilleta in June. Here, a few months later, she is holding Gordo. Gordo had a checkered past. He was captured from Bosque Farms and was fine robust prairie dog until about 3 days before the release. On checking his tank C Rex noticed a lesion on his right cheek. A large lesion. Gordo had been chewed. While the wound was not life threatening it did need treatment and Gordo missed 2 releases. He was held from June until late August. By then the lax life in the staging facility had taken its toll and gordo put on the ounces and shed a bit of his natural coloring. At processing he came in at a robust 1740 grams. Fortunately the wound fully healed, just look at the right side of his face…and he was released in early September. Ashley not only processed him, but release him the next day.
