Some furry, and seemingly unwanted, tenants have inhabited the ball fields around Los Alamos and now officials are holding a meeting to discuss how they should be eradicated.
Gophers have taken up residence in ball fields, posing a danger to those who use the fields, officials report. Not only is it possible for users to trip and fall because of gopher holes, but also the possibility of contracting a disease, such as plague, from infected gophers is also possible.
Parks Manager Dick McIntyre and Parks Superintendent Jeff Humpton will hold a meeting at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Spirio Field Parking Lot at Overlook Park in White Rock.
The purpose of the meeting is to visit with the community and let them know why the gophers are becoming a problem and what kind of treatment the county might be considering. In addition, the meeting will give county staff an opportunity to get feedback from the public before they take any action against the gophers this summer.
