ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas says coyote killing contests are illegal and anyone caught organizing one or participating could face a misdemeanor.

The warning came Friday, after authorities learned through a social media post that a contest was planned Saturday in Curry County.

. . .

Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a bill outlawing the contests earlier this year.

Many ranchers and outfitters say the contests are a tool for managing packs of coyotes that threaten livestock.

2. Odd, isn't it? Such sadistic behavior gets only a vague gesture while helpless animals suffer.

If only these ugly people could be neutralized. The world would be so much cleaner.

3. Thinking about this, I immediately headed toward "The Most Dangerous Game" and then...

what's like to be hunted by hungry critters:

And we all remember "It's a cookbook!"

Any attacks upon humans are somehow against the rules of god or nature, and certainly the rules of humans. But humans can happily kill anything they want.

4. A lot of humans don't view themselves as animals.

Nor do they view other species as people.

5. Of course not-- we were a special creation, and endowed with souls by our creator...

and even if we don't really believe all that, we certainly developed the ego to consider ourselves superior.

(Unless we have a cat.)
