Gopher bounty in full effect
Bounty hunters will have a chance at earning money this year with the renewed bounty on gopher feet.
"We've had this bounty since I've been here," said Sandy Hysell, Union County auditor. "I started in 1989, so it's even been before me."
The bounty may have some historical significance. Gophers are small tunnelling animals and considered pests in North America. The tunnels disrupt commercial agriculture, garden plots, underground cables and landscaping.
