Instead of the familiar sounds of people swimming, playing baseball, volleyball or cricket, Blakely Park sounded more like a civil war battlefield complete with canon fire today.
Actually, no people were at risk. But at the same time there were no disclaimers declaring … “No Animals Were Harmed”, like you see in the movies. In fact, a few inches under ground gophers were dropping like flies thanks to a slick system that creates havoc for those furry, maloccluded creatures that tear up your sod.
Men from ABOL Rodent Control could be seen mixing a gaseous cocktail of propane and oxygen, digging shallow holes, inserting a delivery probe, triggering an ignition switch … then KABOOM!
