Deciding which end to work on

The Sierra Club and the U. S. Forest Service were presenting an alternative to
the Wyoming ranchers for controlling the coyote population. It seems that after
years of the ranchers using the tried and true method of shooting or trapping
the predators, the Sierra Club had a “more humane” solution to this issue. What
they were proposing was for the animals to be captured alive. The males would
then be castrated and let loose again. This was ACTUALLY proposed by the Sierra
Club and by the U. S. Forest Service.

All of the ranchers thought
about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes. Finally an old fellow wearing a
big cowboy hat in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat back
and said, “Son, I don’t think you understand our problem here. These coyotes
ain’t screwin’ our sheep, they’re eatin’ ’em!” The meeting never really got back
to order.

Might work on DC politicians, though.
