Old News: Sheep Murders.

Year and years ago, I remember reading Centennial by James Michener and learned about the war against sheep by Cattlemen in the West. It was kind of surprising and even though my ancestors raised sheep in Spain, it took me less than a week visiting them and working the critters to come to hate them. My mom to this day will not eat lamb and wants to do nothing with those animals.

Anyway, it was funny to bump into this small article and confirm that it was not a figment of Michener’s imagination. I will recommend both the book and the mini series, I think it was the last one done in full grandeur, full production value and with a lot of great actors.

  1. Lamb meat is delicious revenge.

    My dad raised them, which meant that I got to, as well.
    They are maliciously stupid critters, but at least you can pick them up and toss them if you need to get them turned around.

    They will also thrive on ground that would starve a cow.

    1. My family raised cows and turkeys, the turkeys were canabalistic demons and the cows were greedy one ton sociopaths ready to stomp you to death for a bucket of feed. I always take extra enjoyment when eating turkey or beef just to savor the sweet taste of revenge.
