In 1957, in Nevada, a mound constructed by a prairie dog, was run over by a car, driven by Jimmy Keegan, and containing Tommy Shiner, Suzie and Lindy, while they were trying to goad an American military convoy, actually disguised Soviet soldiers, into a race. Later, after Indiana Jones escaped the Russians, he and Antonin Dovchenko rode out of Hangar 51 on a rocket sled, and several prairie dogs observed the sled in amazement. Jones got to see one more prairie dog, after surviving a nuclear blast in Doom Town, when the fridge he had hidden in, winded up on the plains outside, a prairie dog looked upon him in curiosity and confusion.
