Re: Sad Time at My House


OH ZEM!!!! How horribly SAD!. You poor thing. I am sending you so many
hugs and prayers. I will light a candle in my garden outside tonight in
memory of your precious babies. Man, if I lived closer I'd be out there
with the local law enforcment shooting them. I don't believe in shooting
animals..but my husband and kids know that the ONE animal I would shoot
is a coyote. They carry rabies a lot of times and they can destroy a
goat or sheep herd in one night if you have a large pack of them. In
fact, my husband shot one that was rabid in the barn once (in the middle
of the day...which is odd for a coyote to be seen during the day...and
it was sitting up on top of a few bales of hay and didn't even try to
run when Robert walked in....so he knew something wasn't right with it).
Coyotes have been moving closer and closer into the city in the past few
years too. In some midwestern towns, people shoot them and take them in
to the county office and they actually PAY

 people by the pelt because they are trying to thin them out.

  Lucky for me, our policeman is a real animal lover. The TN wildlife people 
have said we have had a huge jump in coyotes this year and that the only way 
to deal with them was with shotguns. The mayor has approved shooting them, 
so I guess that's what the policeman is going to do.
