NM Dept of Game & Fish, how about protecting coyotes from open season hunting & trapping? Sounds like they have work to do: controlling plague carrying rodents.

Actually, plague tends to get a little obvious after a few days, black oozing lymph nodes tends tip one off that they are beyond Nyquil helping out too much, and once they start vomiting blood, they will probably presume something is not quite right.

But on the bright side, plague is one of the few deadly diseases with its own 14th Century nursery rhyme... Ring around the rosie, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, all fall down!

They probably got it from eating in a dirty restaurant, Lord knows there are plenty of them in this state.

Wish they hadn't said pets, now these ignorant people in this state will begin dumping their pets either at a shelter or in the desert somewhere.
