Prairie dogs and black–footed ferrets
In the last 100 years
98% of all prairie dogs were exterminated.
Their range shrank to 5% of what it had been.
Several other species depend on the prairie dog for their survival
including the most endangered mammal in North America
the black–footed ferret.
Once extinct in the wild
black–footed ferrets need prairie dog colonies
for prey and to shelter in their burrows.
