Protection denied for American pika

Isn't he adorable?
Read that the pika was denied protection.
I know why.... they don't need it.
They are accomplished thieves.
Did a lot of hiking up mountains as kid thru 20s. 
These fellows were diving into our backpacks all the time.
When we did a day hike up the Tetons one of them dragged
our day pack off to his den.
Really, all felonies aside, I hope they do get protection.

Ah, they're adorable, even if they are little thieves!

They're always cute until they run off with your stuff ... but still, we ought to be protecting all wildlife.

They are SO adorable! We have Pika at the cabin and they're so much fun!
Here's hoping they get protection.

Hope they get protection as well.
I'm sure Tank and Abby would offer to be their bodyguards.
