Oh yezzz, of the many times I've been called a political ass, this is one moment of kindred pride when I could parade out donkeys, llamas, and other friendly creatures that really do align with us human beasts to protect sheep and other critters we herd for our food & fiber. Poison is not the only way to go--a vicious kick, spit, bark, and other natural deterrents will back off coyotes, etc. You don't need to be gouged by DuPont or Dow if you've got a real honest ass working for you.
