    ...more about the iguanas

    Some people are dumb enough to pick them up off the ground an bring them in their house to warm up. They warm up alright, rather quickly. And now you have several 3-6 foot wild animals caged in your house where they cause thousands of dollares in damages trying to get out.

    They say to humanely kill them pick them up and put them in a large cooler with some dry ice. The carbon dioxide well peacefully and painlessly kill them.

    A big cold snap a couple of years ago hardly put a dent in the iguana population like it normally does. Several local residents discovered the iguanas have learned to go underwater in local canals and lakes just leaving their noses out of the water. The water takes a lot longer to cool down giving the iguanas the chance to stay alive.

    When I got to work this morning it was 41 outside. Their were at least 20 iguanas laying on their backs that had fallen out of trees already.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    I have eaten more then my share of iguana. For a long time my wife, myself, and our daughter would travel down to Mexico 2 or 3 times a year to fish. Most of the time we would fish out of Zuatenajo for rooster fish and sails. While there we would often take day trips to small villages and towns along the West Coast of Mexico for shopping and exploring. Eating in local restaurants versus tourist restaurants gave us the opportunity to sample local food. Iguana stew became a favorite.

    Here are a couple of recipes for preparing and enjoying iguana...

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    I remember back in the late mid to late nineteen-eighties, a band called, "Wall of Voodoo" did a song called "Mexican Radio".

    Part of the lyrics were, "I wish I was in Tijuana eating barbecued Iguana".

    All the Best,

    Instead of using possums try using members of PETA. Think of it as an environmental cleanup project.

Shot out each of its eyes then finished it off with a couple of point blank shots just beneath the skull and into the C-spine. That may sound inhumane but, in my neck of the woods, they are assumed to be rabid until proven otherwise. And we were still raising 3 kids at the time.
    When they seek shelter in a garage/shed, etc it's because the ambient temperature is cool. Their low body temperature causes them to seek shelter and it's the same characteristic which makes it extremely rare that they will become rabid. When cornered they will put up a fierce front, but will seek an escape whenever possible.

    "Do Opossums Carry Rabies?

    Any mammal can get rabies, but it’s extremely rare for an opossum. It’s believed that their low body temperature may inhibit the virus and make it difficult for it to survive. While there are a few reports each year where opossums do carry rabies, cases in wildlife such as bats, raccoons, skunks and foxes are more prevalent.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek
