Gophers Cause Idaho Highway to Partially Collapse!

Fortunately, no motorists were injured and there were no reported accidents because, but Idaho Department of Transportation crews had to work through the night to repair a large sinkhole on Highway 78 near Marsing, Idaho,  just east of Hot Springs due to gophers.

Apparently a community of gophers had been burrowing into the roadbed for some time, and they caused sinkhole at least 3 to 4 in diameter. Crews were dispatched Monday night and were able to repair the hole before any accidents occurred.

Police do not currently have any of the suspects in custody as apparently they are not cooperating with authorities. Below is believed to a picture of the chief culprit.
