Letter to the editor: Coyote hunt setting bad example

Coyote hunt setting bad example

I have been reading some of the online comments about Grady’s coyote hunt and find many to be ignorant and uniformed people.

I thought school was a place to educate and learn about our planet and things that inhabit it.

It sets a bad example for those in education who believe that our eco-system is being destroyed by those who don’t understand the future outcome.

I’ve lost respect for our ranchers, who think the land is theirs and kill any wildlife that inhabit it. The wildlife that is here was here long before ranchers saw the dollar signs of cattle. I’ve met some of these ranchers; they have an arrogance about them, believing they are entitled to mass killing of wildlife they feel are a nuisance — coyotes, black-tail prairie dogs, rabbits, badgers, fox.

I realize my opinion will draw criticism, but I have seen first hand the injustice that man does.
