VIOLA, Minn. (KTTC) -- With the 140th annual Viola Gopher Count two weeks away, it's time to remember the master of the gopher domain.

We took a trip to the NewsCenter archives and found a story from June 2001 featuring the late Lyle Splittstoesser, who made a hobby of catching gophers.

The 140th annual Viola Gopher Count will take place June 18 and 19.
