Gopher Lives Under Launchpad: Gotta-See Videos

This gopher has a great view, but the noise is unbearable.

The spaceport in Kazakhstan is run by the Russian Federal Space Agency and Russian Space Forces, but under the ground lives a menace they cannot defeat. It would seem the cosmonauts have a gopher problem. According to i09, "At Kazakhstan's Baikonur cosmodrome, a news cameraman inexplicably left his camera rolling near a functional launchpad. (The) gopher popped out of the ground to investigate and/or gnaw at the still-filming camera." Perhaps they should enlist the support of the fellas from Caddyshack? via i09
