This fascinating documentary explores the fate of prairie dogs in the American West, where they're killed as pests -- or just for sport -- in such large numbers that it amounts to a wildlife holocaust. Chronicling the decline of the humble rodent, director Doug Hawes-Davis takes an evenhanded look at the contradictory viewpoints regarding the prairie dog's role in the ecosystem, animal rights vs. property rights and the ethics of hunting.
