"Caught one a live by poreing a great quantity of Water in his hole." —Meriwether Lewis

"all the party, except the guard, went to it; and took with them all the Kettles and other vessels for holding water; in order to drive the animals out of their holes by pouring in water; but though they worked at the business till night, they only caught one of them."—Patrick Gass
