Kirin 01 - portrait


This one gave me a chuckle today.

There is no arguing with this cowboy logic. A few years ago,
the Sierra Club and the U.S. 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 tree-huggers had 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 f**kin' our sheep - they're eatin' 'em."
