I saw my first gopher(technically a Richardson's ground squirrel, but no one calls them that) of the year today. He was running around one of the University of Saskatchewan parking lots. Most of the snow is gone there, so he should have an easier time finding something to eat that his fellows elsewhere in the city might. They're cute looking little things, but they cause problems by digging burrows in places they shouldn't, like parks.
