Controlling dingos?

TRUE STORY.

The Australian Government and  the NSW Forestry Service were presenting an alternative to NSW sheep farmers for  controlling the dingo population.

It seems that after years of  the sheep farmers using the tried and true methods of shooting and/or trapping the  predators, the Labour Government (Peter Garrett - Environmental  Minister), the NSW Forestry Service and  the Greens tree-huggers had a 'more humane' solution.   

What they proposed was for the  animals to be captured alive, the males would then be castrated and let  loose again. Therefore the population would be controlled.      

This was ACTUALLY proposed to  the NSW Sheep  farmers Association and Farming Association by the Federal Labour Government  and the NSW Forestry Service.   

All of the sheep farmers  thought about this amazing idea for a couple of minutes.

Finally, one of  the old boys in the back of the conference room stood up, tipped his hat  back and said, 'Mr Garrett, son, I don't think you understand our problem.  Those dingo's ain't f**kin' our sheep - they're eatin'  'em.'   

You should have been there to  hear the roar of laughter as Mr Peter Garrett and the members of the NSW  Forestry Service , the Greens and the other "tree huggers" left the  meeting very "sheepishly".
