Arboretum Goes 'Caddyshack' on its Squirrels

You'll recall Bill Murray marching around Bushwood Golf Course setting plastic explosives (in the shapes of little animals) into the gopher holes dotted across the fairways.  And then the series of explosions which you'll recall led to the devastation of that pristine course, caused vibrations which sank Danny Noonan's winning putt and which, in the end, were survived by the gopher.

Flash forward to the Finch Arboretum in Spokane, Washington.  It's not gophers but ground squirrels.  They are ripping up the grounds, leaving holes, generally being a menace.  The solution?  Fire in the hole.  Take a look at our ABC affiliate KOMO's piece.
