Let people protect farm animals from coyotes | Letters

(RE: “Federal Way resident wants to shoot coyotes”):

In the contest between the local coyotes and the farm animals belonging to Don Barovic and Delores Warner, I believe fair-minded people should support farm animals over predators. If not, the animals will be decimated.

What is more reflective of our nation’s rural history than raising farm animals? Years ago, a farmer could protect his stock with guns and no one complained or interfered. Everyone in the community considered the protection of animals essential. Since then, most of us have transitioned to an urban lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean farm animals within city limits need less protection.

Surely the Federal Way City Council can find the means to allow Don Barovic and Delores Warner to legally protect their animals.

Don Payne, Federal Way
