She had around 30 buzzards eating both her and the calf while the poor cow was floundering on the ground. It was gruesome, and I'm glad that I didn't have either of my boys with me at the time. The buzzards had finished up on the calf and had been working on the cow when I showed up..the cow was still alive. Had to put the cow down.

An animal is not endangered when I see 100's of them when I drive 90 miles east. Sorry, they're not. We're also not talking about bald eagles.
I shoot coyotes all the time and they're no longer a problem but I see more and more neighbors with these things creeping around. I watch my herd carefully but it's impossible to be with them 24/7.
