Acme Hunting Excursions

Maybe we should start hunting Ranchers to save the coyotes!!!!!!!!

Federal Hunt in Arizona Kills 200 Coyotes

What gives anyone the right to place one animal over another? It is positively EVIL! If a few ranchers can raise animals without having to kill predators, then they all should do it. Trying to eliminate predators only causes more problems than it solves, like being overrun with the rodents and rabbits these predators use for food. Look at what is happening with the deer population since the wolfs and wildcats have been dissemated. The deer has become the most deadly animal to humans. The rest of us get fat in our ugly, antiseptic, suburban sprawl paradises while we destroy G-D for our greedy endless needs. What a shame the human race, and the American culture has become.


Now where is that birdie that said he'd be right back?

Here I am Wiley, "beep-beep", come a little closer.

In B.C. I saw lots of coyotes. Spellbindingly beautiful creatures.

Frequently, in the wee hours of morning, if there'd be an ambulance off in the distance, as seemed to occur regularly, the coyotes in our heavily wooded suburban region would howl in magnificent choral response to the ambulance sirens.


It was so cool.

But by far the most impressive sight I saw there was a murder of around 1000 crows. They were all gathered around the trees at dusk behind a McDonalds restaurant. Literally a thousand of these beasts colored every tree branch pitch black. We parked there and just stared in pure wonder at them for an hour. I wonder if they were having some parliamentary thing?

Do you play the piano?

What's with the sniper kitty?

Yes I play scales on the piano. nothing else, just scales. But I do them very well. Never had a talent for the piano, but I practiced the scales until I was, uh, well, like I am now.

The kitty was fine until someone starting teasing him, I think it was those crows. "A Murder of One".

Curiosity, kitten,
Doesn’t have to mean you’re on your own
You can look outside your window
He doesn’t have to know"

The problem with coyotes is that because Man has killed off all their natural enemies (especially the big wolves), we're over-run with coyotes out here in the west. Despite various "coyote bounty" type programs there's way more coyotes out here than there were when Columbus landed in America, and the land won't support them. Because they've eaten everything edible for coyotes to eat, they are now going into residential areas and eating random pets and getting into the garbage.

So, much like the problem of white-tail deer Back East, it appears that hunting is the only way to cull the coyote population back to a reasonable level.

Unfortunately, coyote meat isn't good to eat.
