This footage was captured by an American Bridge tracker in Papillion, Nebraska, on August 6, 2011.


Bruning: Well I'm up, this week on Tuesday night or on Monday night I'm in Broken Bow. And the road superintendant, he says we're trying to build a road in Sargent Nebraska. And they've got all this equipment out there in Sargent, sitting on the side of the road and it's not doing anything. And what's going on? Well somebody found a Burying Beetle. A little bitty beetle and they stop the whole project. One Burying Beetle. And so the biologist has to go out there and he sets this traps and you've seen these buckets right? They put a rat carcass in the bottom and the beetles crawl up and they fall into the bottom of it. And they put all these buckets up and down the side of the road and they capture all the Burying Beetles. The biologist goes out in the morning, grabs the beetles and they take them 2 miles down and they gently let the beetles out. So that the beetles will survive. Some farmer he's got a little more sense than the biologist or EPA or whoever it is. And the farmer walks out there with his video camera one night because the raccoons figure out the beetles are in the bucket. And it's like grapes in a jar. The raccoons, they're not stupid, they're going to do the easy way if we make it easy for them, just like welfare recipients all across America. If we don't incentive to work they're going to take the easy way out
