Columbian Ground Squirrel PhotosNature Stock Photography Libarary - The Columbian Ground Squirrel is a species found in the Rocky mountains west of Montana, In Idaho, eastern Washington state, southeast British Columbia and in the mountains of central and eastern Oregon. Columbian ground squirrels are moderately social animals. They live in fairly large colonies where related females maintain spatial proximity. Population densities around 61 animals per hectare are common. Although not endangered, some conservationists are concerned about the effects of continued poisoning of these squirrels. Because of the negative impact these animals can have on ranching, many ranchers use poison to control poulations. Such actions may have negative effects on brown bear, coyote, marten, badger, mountain lion, and hawks that prey upon these animals.
