Over expert opinions that the animal is a vole, Press Secretary Gibbs insists the creature is a "rat," ..and now they are worrying about it reproducing (other "vole-rat" "thingies" have been spotted in the area) so I am wondering what will become of them all? What is the white house plan of action for them? it, ...glue-stick traps, poison? Why cant they just let them be?
The prairie vole is a notable animal model for its monogamous sexual fidelity, since the male is usually faithful to the female, and shares in the raising of pups. (The woodland vole is also usually monogamous.)
