    The Sierra Club and the U.S. Forest Service were presenting an alternativeto 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 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 screwin' our sheep - they're eatin' 'em!'.
