  •  In Texas, that's how they killed all the wolves (4+ / 0-)

    The Texas red wolf has virtually disappeared because when ranchers wanted to kill them they would hang up meat with a large treble hook six foot high from a tree.  The wolf would jump for the meat, the treble hook would set into the tongue and soft pallet and then starve to death or die of thirst.  Ranchers would leave the dead wolf to rot, and therefore discourage other wolves from staying in the area.
    It's why Texans, and those like them, want fences.  To hang up the dead bodies of "Damn Furners" and discourage more of them from crossing the border, even if they are small children and babies.  
    Is it any wonder why the rest of the world thinks Texas conservatives are some of the biggest assholes on the planet.

      Without the wolves and other predators, the wild hogs have become serious problems.  Odd that no one makes that connection.
