    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.

    This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service.

    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 f@ckin' our sheep ... they're eatin' 'em!"

    The meeting never really got back to order.

    That's a good one!
    They do the same thing around here with
    "ferel cats". they catch them, spay or neuter
    them and take them back to their "colony"
    to live out their life.
    The only problem is that the lowly house cat
    is the biggest threat to native wildlife there is!
