Guess by now most people know people who transport illegals are called coyotes and after all these years they are pulling the same tricks and not getting caught often. Sometime the illegals themselves get caught and sometime not. We're not that far from Mexico and have lots of country roads for them to travel on. Early this morning the sheriff's department called and wanted to know if we have property on such and such road. Thinking cows were out I handed the phone to John. A coyote with a brand new pick-up loaded with illegals had crashed through the fence and coyote and illegals had scattered to the underbrush not to be found leaving the new damaged truck behind. This happens to one of John's leased places every few years and to other people's places. They always use the same mode. When the border patrol starts chasing them and they see they are not going to out run them they crash through a fence and scatter. The truck will check out to be stolen. Actually the truck probably belongs to the coyote or a friend or relative and as soon as they can after the crash they call in to report the truck has been stolen and they are home free. Probably even collect insurance. They never seem to get hurt and the coyotes seldom get caught. Humm makes me wonder?
