The final jewel in Thoroughbred horse racing's Triple Crown has been won by Union Rags, an impressive animal with a smile-igniting name. But the politics of our metaphorical and literal relationships with horses are still going strong.

Coyotes in Nova Scotia: An argument goes awry

About this coyote business. As often happens when country stuff gets caught up in the city media, the argument goes awry. Thus the case, as presented in its skewed way, is that the province is prepared to announce a bounty, although by general agreement they don't work -- the alternative being to do nothing, which won't work either.

That's not the choice, and a bounty -- a payout to anyone who brings in a jaw -- is not what's being contemplated. Rather, it's some form of price support to trappers, a more focused approach.
