  • Coyote-killing “tournament” in Idaho | Coyote Crossing
    pm I can t believe this still happens stupidly on par with the Texas rattlesnake round ups Chris Clarke February 19 2009 at 4 49 pm I called the CoC this morning told them I m a wildlife photographer who wants to visit Idaho and that their conduct will determine whether I choose to spend any money with their local businesses The above has the advantage of being true Suzanne February 20 2009 at 9 25 am Unbelievable that we still have so many IGNORANT REDNECKS with a disdain for native wildlife I really like coyotes They re intelligent and adaptable and unfairly persecuted by the criminal livestock industry I sincerely hope these people get theirs someday for what they ve done to innocent wildlife Please Make phone calls including to the Idaho Fish and Game 208 756 2271 Do it Pick up the phone it will be worth it jason February 20 2009 at 5 15 pm It s so disgusting that words fail me at least insofar as others have already said the various profanities and foul names that came to mind I called both and shared this horror with everyone I know so they could do the same Chris Clarke February 20 2009 at 7 03 pm Okay I ve deleted comments from people on both sides of the issue so my censorship has been even handed I come from a long line of rural white folks Rest assured that there are rednecks that would find this hunt abhorrent people who live in trailers like my mother for instance who would find this hunt abhorrent and hell even ignorant people who d root for the coyotes So I m not about to tolerate any more comments from people blaming this hunt on trailer trash and if you don t like that may Coyote piss on your white picket fence and dainty lace curtains Josh Kivi February 27 2009 at 1 41 pm Hello my name is Josh Kivi and I kill coyotes I call them in with my reed calls and then shoot them with my high powered rifle I know this may sound like I persecute coyotes but i don t They persecute my community When cows are calving ask any farmer about coyotes They say the same thing I will The fact that YOU people don t know anything really upsets me Any intelligent person can see that coyotes are vermin They are The mangy ones don t do anything but make the whole pack suffer Do you want that A whole pack dying of exposure because all of their hair fell out Or would you prefer that you kill one and save 10 from a long horrible death in the Idaho cold If you have anything to say to me I would gladly tell you the truth My e mail is coruptcleric gmail com Feel free to send me any correspondence you like Barb February 28 2009 at 8 48 am You say you don t persecute coyotes You just called them vermin and implied that it s OK to kill them for any reason did you not Coyotes are NOT vermin They serve a necessary role in the balance of our ecosystem Humanely killing wildlife that is SICK or DISEASED is vastly different than killing coyotes for FUN or SPORT Josh Kivi Your post makes no sense as it does not distinquish between killing coyotes for any reason It is NOT OK to kill coyotes or any animal for the FUN of it or because you personally think they are vermin That is disgusting If you have no respect for all of God s creatures you are a waste of time to talk to Proud supporter March 17 2009 at 7 42 pm Coyotes don t just kill rats prairie dogs voles squirrels and eat things that have already died they kill or bring disease our pets stock and antelope along with our other wildlife along with being known to have attacked more then one person and being linked to rabies and many other diseases Plus they are very over populated with a very very resilient population in Idaho and are a nuisance to hunters and farmers all over the state Besides its no different then say a fishing tournament and nobody is having a conniption over those I cant believe all the controversy over this obviously these are people without a clue just ask a farmer in the spring during calving and lambing season what they think of coyotes I personally am proud to say I support The Bent Rod and their decision to host this I hope they make it an annual event Chris Clarke March 17 2009 at 7 56 pm Plus they are very over populated with a very very resilient population in Idaho and are a nuisance to hunters and farmers all over the state When did this start being about Fundamentalist Christians RobG March 19 2009 at 8 03 am Since wolves are the Saddam Hussein of the animal world I guess that makes coyotes Osama bin Laden Mark March 19 2009 at 9 37 am Anyone who holds a personal GRUDGE OR HATRED towards certain animals is probably one ignorant individual greatly in need of therapy It s like hating all Jews or Muslims I LOVE coyotes and wolves and many other animals that have too long been persected by none other than the LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY Jessica M March 31 2009 at 4 16 pm Hi I m Jessica so I m disappointed I missed this event and I hope they make this an annual event so I can attend next year I do so much in the outdoors I might as well not even live in a house I Hunt fish hike etc and I support the event because I have seen how many coyotes are in the area and witnessed some horrendous things they do to other animals And really it s one day

    species to diverge into two sibling species A squirrel spotting a likely mate on the other side wouldn t even have to get its feet wet to exchange some genes And in fact there is a little bit of interbreeding going on along the river which is a pretty romantic spot when you get right down to it and squirrelologists have found a few hybrids between the two species here and there mainly in disturbed areas where the typical behavior of each species may have been disrupted The breakdown of the natural order of things has likely resulted in interspecies mating and yet the Mormon church is strangely silent on the matter If there s no barrier to the populations of squirrels meeting and they can still interbreed what was it that split the original species in two in the first place The Mojave River is still a possibility despite its current lack of well current Before 6 000 years ago there was water flowing in the river lots of it running down off the slopes of the Pluvial era San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains filling what are now dry washes and alkaline playas with water too broad for a squirrel to ford There was a vast network of lakes and streams in the Mojave then with water off the east side of the Sierra Nevada joining in from the northwest filling Owens and Searles lakes and spilling over into the Panamint Valley and Lake Manly on the floor of Death Valley For its part the Mojave River filled immense lakes where Harper Lake is now near Hinkley and Coyote Lake north of Yermo Its main flow continued past them and cut a gorge now called Afton Canyon filled up Soda and Silver Lakes near Baker and ended up in Lake Manly as well It may be that there were other factors beside swollen rivers keeping the squirrels apart The heart of the Mohave ground squirrel s habitat in the northwestern Mojave smack dab in the rainshadow of the Sierra is thought to have remained somewhat arid during the Pluvial and may have been a refugium of sorts where desert adapted critters were able to escape competition from less droughty species taking advantage of the wetter Mojave elsewhere But when you map out the boundary between the ranges of the Mohave and round tailed ground squirrels it s never farther than about 30 kilometers from the Pluvial Mojave River System waterline Things dried up 6 000 years ago so that s a migration rate of about five meters a year not unlikely given ground squirrel behavior as we see it today I love this kind of story so much Who but a complete geek would take note of seemingly arbitrary boundaries between the ranges of two very similar squirrel species The Mohave is a little more pink gray than the round tailed and the underside of its tail is white where the round tailed s is solid cinnamon colored
