In a meeting with Wyoming ranchers the Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service presented an alternative 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 U.S. Forest Service 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 USFS on behalf of the Sierra Club
All of the ranchers thought about this idea for a couple of minutes.. Finally, an old gentleman 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 fuckin’ our sheep – they’re eatin’ ’em! ”
Needless to say laughter insued
