Desert Sage: Entertainment among wolves, trees

Full story: The Deming Headlight

These days, when you can easily drop ten or twenty bucks on an evening at the movies, think of the entertainment your Headlight gives you for a paltry four bits.

It is always refreshing to find someone who knows all the answers (while everyone else is so wrong). Unfortunately, in order to have the answers it seems they have to twist the questions to fit their bias.

"decreased pregnancy rates, open cows, pre-mature birthed calves, abortion of calves, weak calves, loss of body condition, weight loss, immune suppression, increased suseptability to diseases"

could this also be due to our drought, and dumping cattle to "graze" on dried greasebush twigs and mesquite thorns, cattle who thrive on lush green and gentle meadows alongside laughing brooks, dumped in the middle of the dry desert without food or water, under the hot sun all day, where the sight of a wolf might be a pleasant distraction from the oppressive heat?

Scanlon, you seem to be an expert on Palomas. You should stick to that , as you know absolutely nothing about cattle or ranching. I assume you are also an expert on the Mexican wolf, which would qualify you, I suppose, for absolutely nothing. You have never even seen one. AND you live down in the "dried greasebush twigs and mesquite thorns". What an idiot.

Mr. Win Mott,your ability to humorously simplify the plight of your fellow citizens must surely enable you to be the toast of your well bred and highly esteemed circle of like-minded pseudo-intellectuals.I would rather live the rest of my life with the citizens of Catron County than ten minutes with you and your circle of enlightened aristocrats.You better stay in Columbus,you would not make it through six months in Reserve.You are so self-centered,you could never imagine the things a child thinks and feels.It is beneath you to ever think or feel anything for your fellow man,much less a child.The closest you ever came to a cow was a steak on a platter,if you even eat meat.In Catron County the ravens eat the eyes out of new born calves.Life is harsh there,I'd bet you didn't know that.The wolf program is a failure and it does not logically belong on the Arizona-New Mexico border.There is a thin line between humor and lunacy.You have been in the sun far too long and you crossed that line when you betrayed your fellow citizens of New Mexico by penning such a demeaning article.If you were a man of some grit,you would admit it was a cruel mistake and apologize to your neighbors in Catron County.

Absolutley the best critical response to Whynn Mutt for at least the past six days. Thank you for pointing out what I have known for a dozen years. Please feel to continue refuting wynie mutts bulls$it.

PS... if you will take him, I am for one in agreement that he should relocate to Catron County to continue his quest. I hear you need a preacher. Mutt is ordained to baptise your local stray dogs any time in the courthouse park.

Winn, I,for one, appreciate your good intellecvt and humor. I want to thank our freinds in Catron County for feeding the wolves a couple hundred calves and baby deer for their survival. Bambi is not only cute, but very tasty! The problem is volves are so limited in their cuisene--They are striccly carnivors.

Shouldn't we diversify a little? Bears, like deer and elk, enjoy a few juniper berries with their leg-o-lamb. In other words, they are omnivors, who, given the right circanstance can also rip the leg [or arm], off of an unsuspecting journilist.

Warninmg! Winn, before going into the wild, take a well armed and experienced outdoorsman, like Sarah Palin, with you.

No. Jerry this is wrong. Putting Sarah as a side kick to whynny mutt is just an invitation for all beefy looking hungry bears roaming the Gila and opportunity to end up on Sarahs dinner table.

GIVE THE BEAR A CHANCE!

Let whynny mutt buy his own dam gun. Chances are he won't, he will take a knife to a bear fight and the best thing about that?... the bear may not have to suffer the issues with along drawn out hunt for meat and die from starvation.

Naw... Sarahs got a heart. I say she would most likley be distracted by the ten or twenty bears aproaching and having thoughts about stuffing her freezer full of tasty bear meat than keep an eye on a far left liberal preacher.

So wynny would be at the mercy of the hungrest bear and that isn't all bad. The bear would have a full stomach and poor Sarah would get blamed for wynny mutt feeding the bears when she wasn't looking.

Dag far left ranting liberal politician preachers... they'd blame a dead mother for the hungry bear and sarah for not reloading fast enough...

Hope you enjoy a good wolf hunt, armed with your liberal mind-warp, wearing a bunny suit, with some raw meat hanging around your neck.

'well listen to my story 'bout a man named Winn
the poor socialist bawls that oil is a sin
and then one day he was kissin' on some wolves
and praised gays and monkeys from life itself evolves
......Government, we need......Hollywood.....Movie Stars

well, the first thing ya know, ole Winn's a column-aire
the Headlight said, Mott, move away from there
they said Columbus Council is the place ya out'ta be
so he loaded up the muck and he....

anyway, you get my point. If we all pitch in, we can just buy commrade Mott a ticket back to Moscow. Sooner rather than later, please?

Mott is really no woodsman, and definitely not qualified to talk about ranching. He's simply parrots junk he reads in left-wing biodiversity magazines and probably would have a coronary at the sight of a woodchuck, much less a wolf. My guess is he's lived in California for a while, and been contaminated by the Left Coast thinking process. Don't think he could make it for a week in Catron County where men have to be men and get their fingernails dirty.

I would use the same rule of thumb on whining, irrational liberals but that's all they do.
