hyena control

If these people had guns that hyena would not have gotten far. If I had a rabid hyena in MY yard, I don't believe that he'd be a menace for very long.

Of course, these people might have shot and missed.

Villagers armed with axes and knives cornered the animal Monday night, but failed to kill it, prompting rumors that witchcraft was involved. The team sent by local authorities shot the hyena the following day, police spokesman Ramsy Mushani said.

The animal's victims ranged in age between 5 and 65, hospital officials said.

"Rumors of witchcraft?" How about the fact that axes and knives are no match for a raging, rabid hyena? Wanna see some REAL "witchcraft?" Give me a .12 gauge shotgun or a .30-30 rifle in that situation. I'll show you a dead hyena. Pure magic.

PETA people and animal-lovers probably would want to fry my testicles for doing such a thing because, after all, the critter was just being a hyena. Can't fault ANY animal for doing what comes naturally.

Even if it kills nine people.


But it was ONLY doing what predators do, Acid!

Sorry, I forgot your earlier post about leaving you happy faces.

Yep. The enlightened religious folks of our country scorn witchcraft-although their ancesters hung and burnt a lot of them. Yet, they call any type of death god's will. Hell, maybe it was a witches will that a rabid animal killed some people! Pissed her off!
But suspect a 12 bore would have taken care of the witch AND the hyena.

Uh, if it's rabid, it needs to die.

Acidman you are a gem aren't you? I'll bet you got a lot of the old hickory switch when you were a kid.

It's been kind of quiet around here the last few days. Isn't it about time for one of your world famous rants that gets everybody all stirred up and cussing and calling names?

It never ceases to amaze me that people still blame "witch craft" on stupid shit such as this. The weapons they had were obviously USELESS and they probably did not want to get close enough with what they had TO kill it.

Fuck PETA, you can't blame some cranky southern cracker for doing what comes natural to him either...that is pumping a 12 guage deer slug or two into the chest of a cornered, rabid and definately pissed off hyena can you?

(personally, I'd do it three times to be sure)

How could they argue with that?

I just read on the Drudge report that two of PETA's trusted employees were arrested in N.C. for cruelty to animals and illegal disposal of the bodies. Guess they didn't get the message, PETA really does stand for People Eating Tasty Animals, which I guess the cats and dogs were not....that is tasty.

Peter Capstick had a section in one of his books- I think it was 'Maneaters'- about the 'witch animal' stuff in Africa. Some of it's downright weird, including finding a hyena that had killed people that had beads braided into the fur on its' neck.
