Harmful and Beneficial Mammals of the Arid Interior, With Special Reference to the Carson and Humboldt Valleys, Nevada

Description:

"Large tracts of arid desert are now being reclaimed and converted into arable land, rich in agricultural possibilities. Crops, trees, live stock, poultry, and ditch banks in this reclaimed territory suffer from the depredations of certain mammals, and the farmers, many of whom are from remote localities, are not always able to discriminate between friends and foes; nor are they always acquainted with cheap and effective methods of destroying the noxious kinds. The report comprises a brief account of the commoner mammals of the region, with special reference to their economic status and the best means of destroying the noxious species, and has been prepared as a practical aid to the ranchmen of the arid interior." -- p. 2. Among the animal discussed are squirrels, chipmunks, various types of mice, muskrats, rats, gophers, rabbits, bobcats, desert foxes, coyotes, skunks, badgers, weasels, minks, otters, and bats.
