    If you're a Texan this is a must read!----Even if you "ain't" there "ain't" no arguin' with this cowboy's logic...

    A few years ago, the 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 Grower's association by Sierra Club and USFS.

    Well, all the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. Finally, an old boy from Texas stood up, kicked his hat back and said, I don't think you understand the problem. These coyotes ain't screwin our sheep - they're eatin' 'em."

    A Texan is laughin' right now.... That sounds more like extinction as opposed to pop control, though...... But I can see some young cowboy making that statement......
