RE: Muskingum Cty. Sheriff
If you're a tree hugging-whale saver or some other PC type ... this post isn't for you.

I swear ... if it wasn't for good Scotch, most days my head would explode. All the whining, wailing and gnashing of teeth over the Sheriff's mini-safari in/near Zanesville, OH is a perfect example. Let me tell yinz right now that any interactions, on my part anyways, with large predators that believe they're higher on the food chain probably isn't going to end well. The least of my worries would be ruining my britches.

Always thought shark fishing would be cool too, till I actually caught one by accident. Watching all 18", of a mindless teeth-snapping bundle of nervous responses, cured me of any notion of catching 'a big one'. It's the same with big, toothy things with claws ...

*Green Arrow indicates farm location, also its where the carcass's were dragged for the news crews photo-op burial.
