There was a coyote hunting contest in Lac St. Anne County northeast of Edmonton this past weekend. It was one of any number of friendly coyote hunts on any given Saturday in Alberta.
If you spent any time on the internet this week you may have heard about the mass coyote murder that took place in Alberta Beach. Apparently, pick up trucks full of scantily toothed hillbillies were shooting automatic weapons haphazardly from the road, killing everything in sight. Hide your kids. Hide your wife and the like. Or that’s what the mainstream media and the environmentalist left would have you believe.
I went to check it out myself and set the record straight.
And that was hard to do. The organizer, Paul (no last name given) is a trapper. His career relies on maintaining healthy animal populations. He has been subject to death threats and protests because of his little derby in years gone by so he's very careful about revealing the location of his event check-in to just anyone. The hunters who are participating in this derby worry about their families and their livelihoods being targeted by activists because they have the audacity to participate in a perfectly legal activity on private lands that they have permission to hunt on.
Isn't that always the way? One side is vulgar, void of facts and incendiary and the other side just wants to be left alone to exercise their legal rights.
I know there are many ways to control predator populations. But just like with the NDP's farm unionization law, Bill 6, I resent urban liberals whose closest experience with nature in a day involves going to the dog park telling farmers and rural landowners how to control their properties. I support a landowner's right to choose whatever predator control mechanism they see fit.
