WARNING - graphic photos, including a leg-trapped coyote that this man allows his 2 dogs to chivvy viciously, & they eventually kill the animal - not neatly or quickly, but in a long slow torture. Federal Employee Jamie Olson Sics His Dogs on Trapped Coyote ~ Send Emails and Call Now Please. Ask for Termination of Employment. | THIS 'N' THAT Aapparently he sics his dogs on the trapped coyotes regularly; the 9th photo down shows a coyote backing into a conifer, at the limit of the pegged-down trap chain, with the black dog behind the coyote, under the conifer, & the Airedale attacking from the front. The coyote's foreleg is strained almost out of the shoulder, trying to retreat from the Airedale, while snapping desperately upward to threaten the black dog, out of reach behind the coyote's back legs. PLEASE NOTE the grisly photo of the coyote corpse draped over a long-dead tree trunk - the ugly wounds are wire loops, buried in the coyote's flesh, clear thru the skin & exposing muscle & bone. ALL traps are supposed to be checked daily - there is no way in the world that such severe wounds could have been caused in only 24-hours in a trap. Leaving an animal to suffer for days is unconscionable. This employee is violating game-laws that every fur-taker is supposed to follow absolutely. :incazzato: IMO, this is grotesque, the DOGS' behavior is "normal", but that doesn't mean that allowing one's dogs to torture another animal who cannot escape or defend themselves is "normal". IMO it's indefensible - i do hope that he's fired, ASAP. No one with such poor judgement could be considered responsible or ethical, even if he were given a warning / fined / otherwise told to change this pattern of behavior. "Wildlife Services" is the current Federal euphemism for "killing predators", since hunters, ranchers, & farmers or fishermen are not keen on sharing game species or fish of any kind, nor their range-lands or crop-lands or pastures, with any wild species that eats anything we might want to eat - or shoot for sport, or fish for eating or sport. :thumbdown: LIVESTOCK GUARDIANS are one simple solution for reducing livestock losses, which in any case are vastly due to any number of other factors, not from wild predators - stillborn calves or lambs are often eaten by wild predators, as are lambs who die of hypothermia, poor attn from the dam [trapped in the sac, smothered, drowned in birth fluids, etc] - autopsies of dead stock & scene analysis have consistently shown that weather losses kill 10X what predators ever do [cold, rain, driving winds & newborns don't mix well] - but ranchers & farmers think losing ONE head of stock is reason to wipe out every predator bigger than a shrew or a shrike, which is insane over-reaction. Even with all livestock killed by wild predators fully compensated, there are a loud & active segment of ranchers, farmers, hunters & fishermen who don't want any wild predators left alive, outside of a national park. Sorry, fellas - wildlife don't obey "park limit" signs, & they need more space than a few widely scattered "reserves" to survive into the future. I wouldn't want his dogs anywhere near MY stock, if i still had sheep, ponies, & horses - i wouldn't trust 'em, not for 2-seconds - let alone with even more vulnerable penned rabbits, domestic ducks, geese, & etc.
