    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,
