I read today that the suspected range of the Eastern Cougar may now extend to the Eastern and Western extremes of Tennessee. I, for one, am pleased to see the return of the Roosevelt elk, the Eastern Cougar and the red wolf. The introduction of the coyote east of the Mississippi river gave me some awesome targets! I hate the things, but they provide a great deal of fun. I didn't know that the fallow deer were a failed project. When I was a child, I never saw a deer. I saw a big tom turkey on a railroad track near Memphis and it was if I'd seen a dinosaur. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has given us everything that we enjoy today. I support you!



Coyotes WERE NOT INTRODUCED east of the Mississippi River. Their expansion was a natural change in their range. There were some illegal translocations of coyotes by hunters which may have speeded up the expansion, but there was no reintroduction by any agency.

A bunch of coon hunters bought two dozen coyotes and 60 rattlesnakes in a study to see if the snakes would actually kill the yotes or vice versa.

They were all put in a 3-acre pen in Cheatham County. The yotes were fed just enough to keep them alive. Most of the snakes escaped and began to multiply rapidly.

Seeing what was happening, the coon hunters then bought four breeding pairs of mongoose to get rid of the remaining snakes and went after the yotes with golf clubs. I believe they used drivers and a four irons.

The mongoose did not survive the stress and to cover up the operation, the coon hunters brought in 29-red stags from Australia and released them. Their orginal plan was to then bring in several mountain lions to kill the stags, thus completely covering up the snake/coyote fiasco. In order to maintain racial harmony and keep Jesse Jackson from bothering them, exactly half the mountain lions were dyed black. They also turned the 3-acre pen into a putting green to account for the golf clubs.

Then, it rained. It was on a Friday, known there after as black Friday for the color of the grass in the pen. It then became a putting black. All the cougars escaped, most settled the river bottoms and a few settled the tops.

That is the entire story. Don't ask for any more information. I believe the fee to use the putting black is #2.75 for an hour.

Pshaw!~ The hogs all got out of the high fence that was around the Smokies. Some Roosian feller brung em when he come over to teach Ole Popcorn how to make vocky. Way I heard it, they both got plumb knee walkin and Popcorn, why he clumb the fence with a hog under each arm. Story is, he married one and made the other his daughter and went to makin his version of vocky.

So, when Ray Blanton was governor, he got into the vocky and made some feller down at Strawberry Plains in charge of hogs and he commenced to chargin for to hunt em and bring leetle ones in from Taxus. He figgered it would make a ton of money.

Never did, though. Just made people over eat and get fat and the vocky got too expensive to drink.

And that right there is the truth, too.
