Coming out of L.A. a dumb kid, and basically taught no respect for nature, taught by my father to kill any and all predators, actually, I have evolved so far as to not shoot at any wildlife. Marauding dogs and killer tomcats best stay wide of here though.
Forty years ago, I worked with a guy who told me that if I ate meat and didn't do my own butchering, I was just making Safeway my hired gun. I took this idea to heart. I raised meat for some years and found it hard to know the animals I ate. I took up hunting and ended up quitting all meat for years. I'll still murder fish and eat them, but I don't buy any meat. We've all agreed to make Lucky Mud and my adjoining property a wildlife sanctuary, which is the first reason we don't want dogs brought here.
I've worked with the Fish and Game cop and the Sheriff's Dept. to bust poachers. I wrote a public letter critical of hounding and got seriously beaten up for my trouble and told I was being taken out to the woods to be killed. I think I've paid some dues at this point. Many of my "No Hunting" signs got painted over last year. The hunters are pissed because I put my signs too high up to be easily taken down. I think the surveyors painted my signs with their paint can extensions.
