Utah Prairie Dog Tattoo. Deb, my client is a wildlife biologist and she worked with many animals, one specifically, this Utah Prairie dog, she worked with them for about 7 years. There are 5 different species of prairie dogs, but this species, the Utah dog is a threatened species. Too many people just use them as target practice. At one time they numbered over 95,000, now there are fewer than 5,000. She's wanted this piece for years and I was happy to make her day!
