If they weren't liberal twits, they could:
1. Declare open season.
2. Make a few bucks by selling "Special Permits".
3. Let the locals know that they will be looking the other way for awhile.

But no, they will spend $5,000.00 to trap, remove and release the coyotes who will be replaced by other coyotes as soon as these are gone.

The old fellow in the big cowboy hat got a standing ovation


The Sierra Club and the U S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population.

It seems that after years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping the predators, the Sierra Club had a "more humane" solution to this issue.

What they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The males would then be castrated and let loose again. This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra Club and by the U. S. Forest Service.

All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.

Finally an old fellow wearing a big cowboy hat in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said,

"Son, I don't think you understand our problem here. These coyotes ain't fuckin' our sheep;

they're eatin' 'em!"

The meeting never really got back to order.
