how redneck is our province?  story on the CBC this morning about groups opposing hunters who hold contests for the most wolves, coyotes and cougars they can kill in a period of time. sometimes i think i live in a civilized place with ethical hunters (i know quite a few) but then i think i've got it all fucking wrong.

The lower mainland is redneck.  I'd hate to think of what it's like in the north.

Could this be part of a planned cull organized by the authorities?

Wasn’t there a big wolf cull in 2016 or something?

Wait - does this mean I can kill the coyotes in Langara Golf course?

For those wondering why I might want to do that, it's because I used to have 4-5 neighborhood cats that'd come around and hang out. Now there's zero.

Don't have to go that far, go summer camping in the Harrison lake area up @ the FSR sites. It's a gongshow.

Did a ride from Harrison to Pemby on the backroad a couple years back, The fucking idiots camped near us the first night was horrific.

coyotes in and around the towns and cities are an issue. i'm not sure the solution but culling may be part of it. as a cat owner and lover i almost moved to Kamloops a couple summers ago but the trade offs of leaving the Island weren't good enough. one of them was almost anywhere you live in Kamloops your cats are likely to be killed by coyotes.

when i first arrived in BC i lived in Victoria in Cook St Village. more VW buses per capita than in Westfalia Germany. i thought i landed in the most educated, peace loving place in the world. my buddy said 'wait till you leave the city'....  boy he wasn't kidding. 

went ww kayaking on the Cowichan river a month later. on a dead end pull out way down the river access road we came across  a charred cross with jack boots, whiskey bottles and draped with a confederate flag.  i thought, where the fuck am i??  BC rednecks make Manitoba rednecks look like soccer moms. BC is a land of extremes in every sense i've since discovered. 

guy i play hockey with, salt of the earth. was hunting for deer, came across a cougar on a kill. what'd he do, take a picture? nope, shot it, came back to town and got a license. it's a whole different mentality for lots of guys here. i just don't get it.

You can thank the slaughter of wolves for our coyote situation.

That's what happens when houses are built where the coyotes used to live.

And cougars. Don't forget the cougars. They likes subdivisions, just ask sheets!
