Wear an anti-musk mask to avoid being overcome by the pungent odor from the beastly migrating oxen.
Fargo, ND – While North Dakota is still dealing with the Covid crisis, it will soon also have to contend with a Bovid crisis.
Thousands of musk ox from the Bovid family of large hoofed mammals will soon be doing their annual migration.
Because of climate change, this year’s route is going to bring an extremely large group of the strong musk-smelling animals through the Fargo area.
Authorities are recommending that the public wear masks when outside due to the powerful musky odor emitted by the males who are trying to attract females.
Because some of the animals weigh almost 900 pounds, people are also asked to quarantine during the times that the musk ox migration is moving through our region.
In summary, because of the Bovid migration, either shelter in place (in small groups) to stay safe, or if you must go out for beer, wear a mask to maximize your herd immunity to the strong musky smell and minimize your chances of being overcome by the intense Bovidian odor.
Email Dr. Pete Bogg any questions you may have about landscaping or gardening.
Quamba, Minnesota – Ms. Geri Quam emailed our gardening and landscape specialist a great question: How can I create a green quagmire on our Minnesota lake property in order to provide some wetlands for animals and help save the Earth?
Dr. Pete Bogg who headquarters out of our corporate office park says: Dear Geri Quam, I commend you on your desire to create a quagmire on your property.
If done correctly, you will provide vital habitat for beavers, otters, turtles, mink, and maybe even some muskrat love. If done wrong, you might end up with an entangled imbroglio which could possibly even border on a muddled Minnesota morass.
To keep it very simple, in order to create a healthy quagmire, start out by taking some good-looking mire, and then to it add a healthy dose of quag. I’ve found that the best ratio to use here is three quags to every five foot-pounds of mire. After settling, once the whole thing eventually starts to bubble, you’ll know you’re on the right path to a successful quagmire.
Dr. Pete Bogg noted that all the letters in Geri Quam can be re-arranged to spell: Quagmire!
