    When I worked in Ajo, Arizona (where they are the state animal) I worked with folks who had lived in that rural part of the desert for decades and had never even seen one.

    They were only discovered living in the Great Sand Dunes National Park in Southern Colorado within the past couple years. And they do live in the foothills along Colorado’s Front Range (west of Denver) where I grew up and I have never seen one, but I’ve seen a picture of one from the area raiding someone’s bird feeder at night.

    Long story short, they are so sparse and reclusive and feed on so many other things that I wouldn’t spend much time worrying about them.
