Prairie Dog's Prayers Are Answered | Care2 Causes

We couldn’t just leave him there for fear of him drowning or being hit by a boat, so we used a thick plastic bag we kept our lifejackets in to scoop him out of the water. He didn’t struggle or show any signs of aggression. We kept him in the bag (after dumping the water out of course) and I remember feeling him shake as I held him in the bag. My dad drove to the opposite shore from which we suspect he came. There are a few prairie dog colonies around the lake, but we suspected he came from the side where they were building houses. I got out and walked farther up the shore. I set the bag on the ground and pushed through the bag to get him to go. He was too exhausted to even run, so I sat there with him for a couple of minutes until he finally ran away.
