SwiftFox: And I pointed out that violence without empathy or remorse was the definition of "psychopath".
HeadLever: SwiftFox: That seemed the idea of the general merry promotion of shooting dogs going on.Most of the motivation that I saw in this thread was to protect property or other interests, not for merriment.
HeadLever: SwiftFox: It's that disconnect from normal human beings that makes some think a good way to impress the ladies is describing turning prairie dogs "into a red mist" and inviting them out to share the thrill and admire their skill doing so,Some ladies love to do this type of hunting. Not all of them but a good many of them do. Just like the guys.I don't do this to 'impress the ladies' as I am married. I do it because I enjoy the outdoors, I like to test my markmanship, I like to help out my ranching friends and relatives. What is disconnected is your idea of what motivates us to like something that you obviously don't.
SwiftFox: HeadLever: ad hominemYou have no idea what that means, do you?
blunttrauma: dittybopper: The problem: Sometimes the neighbors pets get loose. Putting out poisoned hamburger or a trap is a recipe for some very, very bad blood between you and your neighbors when Fluffy or Spot ends up dead.I thought about that sort of thing when we had a coyote problem, and the risks just weren't worth it.If neighbors pets are getting out with coyotes around, they are just as likely to get killed by the coyotes as poison. Coyotes love domestic animals, generally speaking because they know they are all but defenseless. Lots of stories around here of coyotes hopping fences, grabbing fluffy and hopping back out.In fact, I saw an article a few years ago about a coyote hunter who used a stuffed Snoopy as a decoy when calling them in, with excellent results.
