Coyotes, predators major threat to Edwards County traditional livelihood
The Preservation of South West Texas Wildlife held its annual meeting last week on Wednesday evening. Delicious brisket and all the trimmings along with dessert were served.
Stan Cottle and Sam Epperson each gave important presentations in regards to the grave predator situation causing devastation to Edwards County.
Cottle wanted to emphasize that in his presentation “we” means every rancher, trapper, hunter, employee, spouse, etc. that has donated money, time, and/or otherwise furthered the cause of preserving wildlife and livestock. In addition, it was discussed by several members that even every business owner in Rocksprings ought to be involved with the Preservation because deer, hogs, etc. bring hunters here and they spend a lot of money at our local businesses. If predators, especially coyotes, manage to grow in population and wipe out wildlife (and livestock) then revenue will decrease in huge amounts for everyone. “We are all in this together,” stressed Cottle.
