A few years ago, 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' Association by the Sierra Club and USFS. Well, all the ranchers thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. Finally, a good old boy sitting in the back stood up, tipped his hat back and said, "Son, I don't think you really understand the problem here. These coyotes ain't scr*win' our sheep, they're eatin' em!"
