The Border Patrol Rides Again
John called the renter at the farm house at the ranch to see when he could pick up the rent money. The renter told him there were Border Patrols riding over the property and a Border Patrol helicoptor was circling over-head. We had been out earlier and it was too wet to drive to the back forty so we didn't even find the cows. When there is water in the dry creek bed they don't even come up to drink. They rather drink the dirtier water then to walk after grazing. Hope the Border Patrol has four wheel drive and I'm sure they do, but the question is how did they get in when all the gates are locked? Maybe the usual way. A coyote (man who transports illegals) is driving a big new stolen or rented truck loaded with illegals. When they are spotted by the Border Patrol and they give chase the coyote drives righ into a ranch fence and they all pile out and run for their life. They don't usually catch the coyote but do some of the illegals. The truck will be reported stolen and no body knows nothing. Rancher has to fix fence, truck is returned, illegals go back to Mexico, and coyote is where ever to do this all over again and try not to get spotted next time. So we'll be checking fences in the morning. No one called but some good hearted person may have patched it or maybe the scenerio was different.
