    Saw three of these sorry looking lil pups on a recent fishing trip. They look like Wiley coyote after the roadrunner worked him over with some sort of Acme bomb. I've seen some mange on yotes before but these guys looked like one of those fancy hairless dogs. They spent most of the time scratching and biting themselves. I couldn't even tell what they were at first. Anybody seen one that looked worse than these guys?

    When I worked at Harbour Pointe there was a litter that had mange as bad or worse that that. The pups were stunted too, probably a side affect of the mange. Mother Nature will cull the weak and sick as she always has...

    We shot one in Montana the last trip that probably would have froze to death during the winter. Lots of hair loss.

    Matt, all you would have to do is drop the ammo from that on them.

    Yeah I know, serious overkill. I am just possessed by this 375 H&H round I found in my dad's safe. No weapon for it or anything, just the round. All alone. Sometimes I take it with me to work, like a pet frog. Rubbing and fondling it. I feel like that one private that goes nuts in Full Metal Jacket. Talking to it all the time. Telling it I will buy a rifle for it some day.

    Not that I plan on dropping one of the elephants at Woodland Park or anything, but gezus it would put some serious hurt on an elk or moose or big ol' fat cougar. I bet you wouldn't have follow the blood trail to your kill.
