Chris Weaver lived in Thurston County, Washington  and was charged with the crime of killing a pocket gopher.  He now has a criminal record because he was trying to clean up his property and he hurt a gopher.  This was another video I produced while I was at the Freedom Foundation for the Tales of Tyranny series.


  1. Hello there. I am a student at South Sound Community College. I am currently in Public Speaking class and we have been given a group project. Each group picks a topic they would like to research on that is causing problems in Thurston County. My group has chosen the problems pocket gophers has/have with property owners . Part of the research includes doing interview. I would like to interview Chris Weaver and have him give his input on the problems he has faced !!! Please contact me if this is possible. Would love to hear back. Thank Kimberly Morrow.
