New Mexico coyote hunting
contest sparks protests

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An online petition against a planned coyote hunt New Mexico has generated tens of thousands of signatures worldwide, the FBI is investigating a death threat to the gun shop owner who is sponsoring the hunt and one protester has even vowed to dress like a coyote to trick hunters into accidentally killing a human. But none of these episodes will likely stop the owner of Gunhawk Firearms from holding the planned two-day coyote contest this weekend, despite the international attention the idea has garnered. ‘‘I´m not going to back down,’’ said Mark Chavez, 50,

Yeah, that´s it: dress like a coyote and get shot. Well, that would help a little....One less idiot in the world.

Coyotes don´t have a lot of friends, I have never understood that. They do need to be kept to a sensible population but having a hunting contest seems a bit violent.

If I were to shoot a coyote impersonator, I´d want to cripple him so he would have some time to reflect on his own stupidity.

A neighbor of mine recently lost two of his Black Angus calves to coyotes. They will also kill and eat your cat or small dog.

I have never heard of one killing a human but I certainly wouldn´t trust them around a toddler. Plenty of children have been killed by ´pet´ dogs already.

And isn´t that typical of an animal rights activist to call and make a death threat. Real tolerant folks.

Tens of thousands of signatures worldwide. Meaning, a bunch of self-righteous Socialists who´ve never dealt with coyotes feel perfectly justified in demanding a state do as they say. How precious.

As for coyotes, I hate them. They´re like rats only bigger and more dangerous to your pets and little ones. Yes, they will attack a human if it´s a small one -- babes and toddlers. They will stalk your dog even if it´s on a leash attached to your hand. They are a hearty, prolific species that´s more in danger of over-populating than dying out, so why not give hunters something to shoot at.

Went out to walk the dog at dusk and looked a coyote in the eyes at the end of my driveway. Feet did their duty! Neighbor had the same experience. The howling at night is too eerie. Our neighborhood is bereft of cats and some dogs due to these beasts. It isn´t right to have to tote your gun walking the dogs but we do.

The clown in the coyote suit was, almost certainly, an Obama voter. Now he can join the illustrious ranks of the Darwin award winners.

Coyotes have gotten out of hand. They are decimating the deer population in some parts of Ohio. No real preditors around here except humans. West Virginia is having the same issue.

If he gets lucky in that costume, a coyote might attack him.

There are so many coyotes now, that they are strolling urban areas. We are not talking about Bambi folks.

Coyotes are very adaptive animals and are difficult to hunt. A bunch of city guys going out on private land at the same time and blowing wounded rabbit calls will probably cause the wily creatures to hold tight in their dens until the contest is over. The protest is just flat-out stoopidity.

coyotes are wild dogs. They are conniving, clever and do tremendous damage to both livestock and wild game. To find a calf, or a deerling that has been attacked by coyotes is shocking for the kinds of injuries the coyotes inflict. I lived and scouted the New Mexico wilderness for many years. And can honestly say, although coyotes are a part of nature, their numbers must be kept under control if any industrial agriculture or wild game management is to be maintained. nature once kept the coyote under control- until man removed that control. It was wolves.

See if you can get a group of your friends to dress up along with you! The gene pool needs to be reduced anyway and since John Kerry and Al Gore aren´t volunteering, I guess your group would be a good start! Think it as your gift to Mother Nature and your fellow man.

In this country we kill over one million unborn babies every year through abortion. It would be nice if these activist were as concerned over an unborn child as they are over a coyote hunt.

Coyotes are deer killing machines. They also kill calves, sheep, lambs, colts and other farm animals and other game animals. Reducing the predator population is good conservation. I have no problem with it. One dead coyotes = one or more deer or farm livestock will live.

When I lived in NM, IL culled the deer herds in parks. In NM. we didn´t carry guns, but were leary when walking big dogs on the Mesa. The border collies are good with prey animals. But, in our own back yard, we let our cats out (didn´t own small dogs then), we had to sit with them, there were eagles, hawks, and falcons. And coyote could jump privacy fences to get toddlers, small dogs, and cats. Cull them, it´s a good idea.

Morons rule! Yes, the same animal lovers prefer nature kill them via being eaten alive, starving to death, disease or taking a human or two with them by causing a car wreck. See the wisdom at work?

Coyotes are one of the only feral animals that have increased in population with the encroachment of man. In southern Cal, they have been known to snatch children´s lunches out of their hands. They will "call out" a pet dog and attack it in a pack. They need to be controlled and this is a good start. It´s just too local. It should be nationwide.

It’s been more than 40 years since Watergate, but the old story—and its characters—made news once again with the Washington premiere of Robert Redford’s new documentary about the scandal. And Top Line snagged red carpet interviews with the big stars of the night: Robert Redford, Bob Woodward, and Carl Bernstein. Redford’s new documentary All the President’s Men Revisited takes a historical look at the scandal—and the investigative reporting by Woodward and Bernstein—that ultimately led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. Redford, who says “we need a lot of people like Woodward and Bernstein” today, hopes the documentary

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
