Learn to live with coyotes

While it is unfortunate that coyotes in Leawood have attacked and killed several dogs in recent months, the coyotes are not to blame for the incidents. To prevent future incidents, our own behavior should be modified. Just as we lock our doors and install security systems to guard against unwanted human activity, we also should humanely protect our property against unwanted wildlife encounters.

Keeping our cats indoors and our dogs leashed will prevent them from being attacked. Securing trash containers and clearing rotting fruit and dense weeds from our property will go a long way toward keeping coyotes away from our homes.

Trapping and killing coyotes is cruel and ineffective. By taking simple measures we can ensure that coyotes will not become a safety threat. To learn how to peacefully coexist with wildlife, visit www.AbolishSportHunting.com.

As I didn't think you really meant to shoot anyone I was also being facetious. But I meant the Priest that has finally convinced Obama the Evian that he has got to ditch Trinity church also. Going to make a big bump for the bus.

solomon

Engineer,

I have no idea who you are referencing. Please tell me who and what his crime is. It would have to be terrible if he compares with Klansmen who raped murdered and killed, meth brewers who cook drugs that destroy communities, crack dealers for the same reason and gangbangers who have no value for the gift of life.

is there some serial criminal priest out there the press is hiding?

Engineer

solomon
"the Catholic Priest" obviously refered to one individual. I think you know the one I had in mimd.

solomon

Engineer, (with apologies to Rogue)

Don't know why you'd include the entire group of priests (when it is not a majority of them that are criminal) along with the 4 I mentioned which include nothing but scumbags.

Engineer

Don't sweat it. Surely you wouldn't have been given the equipment if you weren't meant to use it. But it was I, not Rouge, who missed you sarcasm. Maybe if you had included the Catholic Priest of recent frame in your target group I'd have caught on.

Hey Rogue,

I lost any chance I ever had at a halo decades ago. (7th grade if I recall)

How many coyote letters are we going to get is the point of my post. Sorry the sarcasm went past you on this one.

Engineer

Sorry, solly. Can't help you. In my youth we only shot the four legged chicken stealers. Is that halo tight enough to give you headaches?

solomon

Lets also kill the Klansmen, meth brewers, crack dealers and gangbangers. They all pose a greater danger than coyotes.

Rogue

Joe is an anti-hunting moron. Hunters do more for wilflife management than any other group. BTW Joe, you had better not be a meat eater, given your inane stance.

You and your dipstick Governor have to live with all the bear attacks and confrontations in your sorry state because you banned hunting them, and they no longer fear man.

People like Joe will get you killed folks.

Engineer

One positive thing about a rural background, it eases the angst over problems such as this. Varmints bother the stock, get rid of the varmints. People such as Joe Miele apparently badly need something to do.
