And some humans are just basically nuts. So what are my choices between black and white as far as letting my pets roam on my property? What right do coyotes have to dictate that. How was the bird able to fly without tail feathers? Did the bird make it home to its family? What do you call restraining an animal if it is not locked into a pen or a house? Answer all the questions. Why do you have to attack people all time and call them names? Do you have many human friends or do you just basically have to hang around animals that you probably restrain for your own emotional crutch?

No but my cats and dogs are, it is no stuggle at all with the coyotes for me, I am armed and they aren't. Any way answer all the questions. What degree of restrait should I use? Black, white, or gray restrait? If gray, which shade?

"I don't understand how the llama was killed, I was assured by one of our most renown animal experts of the FReepers on a previous thread, that all you had to do to protect your other animals is get a llama. Do the llamas actually protect the other animals by beating up on the wolves or are the other animals given a chance to beat feet because the wolves eat the llamas first. I need to know this because this is really important."

Here's another post that you might have missed from the long thread:

"Here in the South, we keep Mules in the pasture with cattle.Our main pest is coyotes. We haven't yet had much trouble with the Mississippi Red Wolf...which has been reintroduced by our Benevolent Government. A 1000lb mad mule is pretty effective.

"Wildcats and Cougars also give them a wide berth. Mexican Trans Workers have seen deer kills here in this part of Alabama(junction of Alabama and Tombigbee Rivers)that look like "El Tigre" kills in Mexico."

I am going to start killing coyotes and posting the results just to piss off Sunsong. No joke I am really going to do it. Sunsong gave me the idea.

Sunsong just likes to fight with people, that is why it has to have dogs for an emotional crutch.

Can you think of any choices other than the two extremes?

How do you see coyotes "dictating" to you? Do you write it or is recorded by voice?

What other ways are there for you to keep your pets safe without locking them up or letting them roam free where coyotes might kill them? Do you think that coyotes should be required to go to school and learn to read and write and understand the concept of "human property" as opposed to "the woods"?

The Eskimos (yet another minority persecuted by whitey) smear knife blades with animal fat, then jab the knife handle first into the snow, leaving the blade exposed.

Wolfie comes along, licks the blade, lacerates his tongue, and since its so cold the wolf bleeds to death without feeling pain. The Eskimo then has a no-risk wolf kill.

Between whaling and wolf-hunting those Eskimos are the enviro-whacko's worse nightmare.

What about the under privileged cattle owners who can't afford mules, what are they supposed to do?

How you coming on the black and white issue of restraint?

"What about the under privileged cattle owners who can't afford mules, what are they supposed to do?"

What do you think would help?

"How you coming on the black and white issue of restraint?"

Do you prefer black, white or grey. A lot of wolves are grey. You could be magnanimous and choose grey in honor of wolves :-)

I asked you the question about the degree of restraint, don't try to weasel out of the answer.

Why are we concerned about mules when they can only handle coyotes, you said this is about wolves.

I think Wolves and Grizzlies should be "re-introduced" to Central Park in NYC. ;-)

This Sunsong is truly confused or just looking to pick a fight.

Sunsong says: "I have no problem with people shooting wolves that come onto their property."

So I assume wolves can read a no trespassing sign? Wolves are animal kingdom terrorists...we should hunt them down and eliminate the problem rather than waiting for them to attack...like GWB's policy of taking it to the terrorists.

" But don't you think that people should eat what they kill?"

Sounds good to me...Anyone have wolf recipes handy? How about rack of wolf on the barbie?

a breed that was developed centuries ago by Basque shepherds to go out on their own to guard their personal flocks of sheep while the men slept by their campfires. Most active at dawn and dusk when predators are most likely to attack, it was not unusual to see a pyrenees wrapped around a new-born lamb to warm it or to stand at the edge of the herd, barking defiantly, daring any predator to come closer to its charges.

They ain't cheap, but they are big and wolfs do not like them. Best get 3 or 4 as dogs work better in packs, no one dog can fight off 5 or 6 wolves.
