A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Coyotes – 5 September 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

I’m happy to see that Hope Ryden’s wonderful book God’s Dog: A Celebration of the North American Coyote is back in print.

The way coyotes are used as bait to train hunting dogs should most definitely be declared criminal behavior. And that’s putting it mildly! If you have any doubt that evil is rampant in this fallen world, realizing what humans do to these creatures of God will convince you of the truth: Satan is indeed the “ruler of the world,” as Jesus says in John 14:30.

“Coyotes are not fighters. They have all kinds of body and vocal signals that they use with each other to keep from getting into fights.”

But when they’re turned loose in the dog running pens and the dogs take them to the ground, the signals the coyotes give are ignored by the dogs.

“By now there are three or four dogs tearing her [female coyote] apart. If she is pregnant her babies get ripped out. She is losing blood and the pain is horrible. The last sound she hears is the sound of humans laughing and egging on the dogs to tear her apart.”

– From CeAnn Lambert’s article “Coyotes Used As Bait To Train Hunting Dogs” published in The C.A.S.H. Courier (The Committee To Abolish Sport Hunting), Summer 2008. Please visit 

My closing comment: Many of these sociopathic human hunters would describe themselves as “pro-life” and claim to be against the abortion of human unborn babies. Yet look at the extreme evil that they enjoy inflicting on God’s other creations!
