Flooding the Gopher-foot Market

Tina Marie Garrison, 37, and her son Junior Lee Dillon, 18, of Preston, Minn., were charged in June with stealing almost $5,000 worth of gopher feet from the freezer of a gopher trapper in Granger, Minn., and selling them for the local offered bounty of $3 per pair. Garrison, Dillon and the victimized trapper were friends, and it wasn’t clear why the thinly populated gopher-foot market would not have deterred Garrison and Dillon.
