Sierra Clubs proposed Coyote solution for Wyoming....

The Sierra Club and the US Forest Service were presenting an
alternative to 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 predator, the Sierra Club
and other environmental groups were proposing a "more humane"
solution.

What they proposed was for the animals to be captured alive, the
males castrated and let loose again and the population would be
controlled.

This was ACTUALLY 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 stood up, tipped his hat
back and said, "Son, I don't think you understand the problem.
Those coyotes ain't screwin' our sheep - they're eatin' 'em

Thats great. What a great comeback, sounds just like the ranchers I grew up with as a kid!

And how exactly did they propose to Capture them?

Thanks,
