Don’t believe the hype.

Only a few weeks ago I read a press release issued by a large hunting and fishing organization bemoaning that rising populations of coyotes will be the end of us all. It was the kind of wild media hype that was rampant in the 1970s, stating that unless all the coyotes and wolves in the province were killed, they would in turn kill all the deer, cattle, sheep and small children in their path. Run, hide, get a gun!As I read, and re-read in disbelief, this recent posting, I could but shake my head. This otherwise sane group was asking the province to reinstate bounty systems to allow hunters to make a bit of money from their weekend hunts. And, while they’re at it, why not lift the wolf hunting ban near Algonquin Park?
