The Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population. It seems 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 would then be castrated and let loose again. Therefore the population would be controlled.

This was ACTUALLY proposed to the Wyoming Wool and Sheep Grower's Association by the Sierra Club and the USFS. All of the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. Finally, an old boy in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back and said, 'Son, I don't think you understand our problem. Those coyotes ain't f#$%@n' our sheep - they're eatin' 'em!'



You should have been there to hear the roar of laughter. :D

This is an old joke and still funny.
However, I sure wish that they would have spayed the female wolves that were released in ID/WY a few years ago. The tourists could still have sat outside their motels and hoped to hear a wolf howl but we would not have the depradation problem that now exists.

I think that's a fine idea, but should be tried first in all the State houses and Federal capital first. On further reflection I suppose the results would still be the same.

These coyotes have eaten the American sheep to long.

Yes, because unlike the coyotes and the sheep, Washington IS f#@king us.
