The gopher infestation - and subsequent bitings and twisted ankles - at Sunset Park in Henderson has led to some drastic measures. Four to five days a week, a park maintenance worker hunts the fields for gopher holes, armed with the newest in humane gopher-killing weaponry: the Rodenator. See it in action in this video: when a worker finds a fresh mound, he uses the long rod of the Rodenator to pump propane into the gopher's burrow, and then "boom!," the gophers have been euthanized.
