  •  Your points about the way ranchers have pushed out (0+ / 0-)

    wildlife that they view as a threat to their livelihoods is accurate and well-taken.

    But this is simply not true:

    You are taught animals have no value other than for killing
    And it undermines your other good points.

    Go to an auction sometime where a multi-generational rancher or farmer who is retiring or getting foreclosed on is selling their herd and watch their face when the last load of cattle is in the trailer and headed down the road.

    I think you are likely to see a person, even though they might be a coyote-hating Replublican, that knows that animals have value beyond killing.
