GENEVA adidas nmd r1 pas cher , Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Tourists find marmots cute, but some authorities want to shoot the furry rodents which they say are plaguing Switzerland's famed Matterhorn region, Swiss Radio SRF reported Thursday.

Visitors to the Matterhorn region love the animals and their warning whistles. In Zermatt, there is even a marmot trail, and kiosks sells postcards featuring the podgy critters.

But as popular as these rodents may be in photo albums, local residents are finding they are becoming a menace.

Normally adidas nmd human race pas cher femme , marmots live several hundred meters above the tree line. Many have, however, been making their burrows down in the village of Zermatt, damaging farmers' fields and stealing from houses.

"If someone leaves a balcony door open, marmots sneak into the house. They also dig beneath retaining walls," Romy Biner-Hauser adidas nmd human race pas cher , Zermatt's mayor, told SRF. "Now we have to do something; it can't go on like this."

Peter Scheibler, head of the Hunting, Fishing and Wildlife Department of Valais canton where the Matterhorn is, said, "Probably one reason for this is that they aren't hunted much."

He said marmots are also "optimally protected in areas where humans live adidas nmd city sock pas cher femme , because predators don't approach them there".

Farmers in Zermatt are particularly hard hit by the influx of marmots. Shepherd and organic farmer Paul Julen can no longer use one of his fields because of all the marmot holes.

"The risk of accidents is very high when there are so many marmot holes in a meadow," he told SRF, noting that he almost lost two newborn lambs that had fallen into a marmot burrow.

HOHHOT, Dec. 4 (Xinhua) -- The bathroom of Narenhua's guesthouse now has a flush toilet, and an electric water heater guarantees hot water all day long.

"The hygiene standards here are getting better these days adidas nmd chukka pas cher , and more tourists are coming," said Narenhua, who lives on nearly 400 hectares of grassland near Bayannur in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

"The population is quite small on the grasslands, and there was a very limited number of toilets here," she said. "People usually answered nature's call in the open."

As the number of visitors has increased in recent years, complaints also grew adidas nmd pas cher femme , especially during peak season, as the guesthouse had no toilet or bathroom.

In 2015, Narenhua's family built a dry toilet about 200 meters from the house.

"The toilet environment soon got bad, especially in the summer, it smelt really bad," she said. "There were a lot of flies adidas nmd pas cher , and the odor was simply choking."

One year later, the local government decided to promote tourism on the grasslands by offering local herders subsidies for running guesthouses. In July 2016, Narenhua built a new guesthouse next door, with tap water, a water heater and flush.
