Resolution for the prairie dogs in Bixby. The prairie dogs are as good as packed up Tuesday night, since corporate sponsors and individual donors raised more $1,500 to move the little critters to a new home.

A group of supporters met Tuesday at the Simple Simons in Bixby. It was there that Citidel Security, Tulsa Websites and Simple Simons each gave $500 to see the dogs safely moved to their new digs. Marcia Cowen, Prairie Dog Supporter: "In my wildest dreams I don't think we'd get it this quickly. 50 and you know there's going to be little things that come up that will require more, but we are just flabbergasted. I mean they are going to start their new home Wednesday."

The prairie dogs will be transferred to three acres of land behind the Peach House in Broken Arrow.
