Received this e-mail today, don't know if it's true.

A few years ago, Sierra Club and 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. I kid you not, 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 in the back stood up, kicked his hat back
and said, "Son, I don't think you understand the problem. These coyotes ain't screwin' our sheep, they're eating them!
