People in Wyoming have a great ability to express things clearly...
>A few years ago, Sierra Club and the United States Forest Service (USFS)
>were presenting an alternative to Wyoming ranchers for controlling the
>coyote population. It seemed that, after years of the ranchers using the
>tried and true methods of shooting and/or trapping the predators, the
>tree-huggers had a more "humane" solution.
>What they proposed was for the animals to be captured alive, the males
>castrated, then let loose again and the population would be controlled.
>This was actually proposed to the Wyoming Wool and Sheep Growers'
>association by the Sierra Club and USFS. Well, the ranchers thought about
>this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.
>Finally, a good old boy sitting in the back stood up, tipped his hat back
>and said, "Son, I don't think you really understand our problem here. These
>coyotes ain't breedin' our sheep, they're eatin' em."

Kraig is it true that the ranchers poisioned all of the pairre dogs before the a oles could stop them? my cousin used to hunt out there and said something to effect,. I think this the smart thing to do but common sense is gone

What a joke.
They would really rather trap these varmits and castrated them rather than shoot them? I have heard everything now. What a joke.

drove them out well about 2 weeks after this renew of nature we lost 20 chickens in one night

goodly number over a time problems arrise,problems are solved

Should think if PETA was the truely concerned organization They claim to be They would insist on contraceptives to save tha excrucating pain of casteration! Them Coyotes have rights too you know.

When it comes to common sense the Seairy club is in a class alone! They advocate doing away with all roads in Mo and returnig to the same condition as it was when "discovered" by Luis and Clark. I'd go along with that if it ment removal of KC and SL including all inhabitants thereof across the River East and West respectively. The rest would take care of It's self.
We already have a more than ample supply of Coyotes thank You. Tha PILL! Tha only safe sane sanatary solution to tha situation says I !!

Sounds like the folks in Wyoming have the same sane outlook on life as the 'locals' here in Vermont.

Pretty sure Les is one of us...somehow he got across the river by mistake...may have been on the ice...

Ya sure Les isn't one of them who thinks Vermont is really still part of New Hampshire?

Nah...He only claims The Kingdom...

Les...Wrong!    Posted 06-07-2002 at 10:40:01       [Reply]  [No Email]
I claim all the way to the Lake. ";^) (Except for Ben and Jerry. You can keep those communists. And your whole congressional delegation. Oh yeah, you can keep your governor, too. Matter of fact, why don't we just forget the whole thing.)
My greatgrandfather escaped VT in 1867 when the river was froze over just before Christmas of that year.

Get ready Les...
Our Governor is going to be your next president.

You can already see his "stylist" giving his hair just the right touch of gray to look distinguished. I am torn, want to vote for him just to get him the heck out of here...but then he would be President.

Tomorrow I get to meet with the DNR Wild Life Enhancement people from higher office. It will be fun listening to the collage boys on how to do it right. Things like the mice need more grass to live?? I have a area they paid me to fence and once a year they come out and waist theres and my time on how to take care of it. I only have 5 years to go then they are off my back and the 4,800.00 fence around the lake is mine free and clear. It was worth it, just some what of a pain to deal with. This is my late summer pasture and it dose keep the open range cows from eating it first in the spring! I put my cows in there at the end because the grass is tall and green after the ducks are gone. I also put them in there for a while in the begining of the year while the others are just starting to grow. I have 4 pastures I rotate on thru the year. With our drought it is a little harder not to put them in there early. Mark H.
