The Torrington Gopher Museum


Off Highway 2, about an hour north of Calgary, is the village of Torrington. Torrington is a prairie town, the kind of place where you don't use your turn signal because everyone knows where you are going, and where 3rd Street is the edge of town. Torrington features a museum with a few dozen dioramas featuring stuffed gophers, depicting life in Torrington.

The photo shows two gophers enjoying a meal at Bernie's Diner.


PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) was not amused.


I was.
