    Cattle are good for animal basics. Thinking animals are a little tougher. I'd volunteer for the training with the DOW. Even if you don't get to run the show, it's interesting and helpful to know how things work with wild animals. This punk woke up before I was ready because the deputies didn't tell me they chased it for 2 hours before I got there and it was pumped up.

      Keith,

      Good job with the cow. Now just do dogs, horses, llamas, goats, snakes, skunks, and feral hogs and we will be even!

      With me in my new job, I hope you will quickly surpass me in the wildlife arena. I plan to specialize only in tweakers and crackheads from now on.
      If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

            By the way, I don't think it would be considered "wildlife," because it is domesticated.
            You have a domesticated cow? Does it sleep on the bed with you or at the foot on a cow-bed?

              I try to use the siren and scare them out of town, but if that doesn't work I fire cracker rounds from the shotgun (I try to avoid that because I hate having to clean the shotgun twice a day during bear season).

              It's a myth that polar bears are the only types of bears that will hunt humans. All three types of bears will do that. however, polar bears are actually the least likely to attack.

                    Hey LA DEP, my buddy back in LA is headed to LASD's Respect-Based Leadership training, today. The Deputy Leadership Institute wasn't enough? What's this new one all about?????

                        Yeah my first call at KC was a quadruple shooting in the hood. The first cow call I went on at the new job was interesting. I asked another officer if I could drive-stun w/ the taser.......from my car of course. lol. No, I didn't man up and do it! I like dealing w/ tweakers between animal calls. Our animal control guy works M-F 8-1700..........Leaves a lot of time for officers to be doing animal cop work unfortunately. That and lock-outs are the two things they forgot to train us on in the academy.............

                          Hey Kieth,

                          Was at your office today. Whats up with the Swear jar dedicated to you
                          The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

                            I promised somebody in the app/IV/BI process that if I got the job, I would create the Kieth M. "big-city, west-coast" swear jar. And I did.

                            It works like this, IF, I ever spout off, UNSOLICITED, telling anyone and everyone how much my previous department "did it better" I put a buck in there.

                            My previous department has a reputation for breeding and exporting cops with very oversized egos. My aim is to be a humble (but proud) employee of my new department.

                            Now, someone else has put in a dollar, just to make it look like it's some kind of tip jar.

                            Sorry I missed you, I came on at 1600, but was hanging around at 1520.

                              I was laughing when I looked over and saw it. I came over to show a trainee the office. To be honest I haven't been there in years. I usually work a different area. I ended up staying for a bit and catching a couple cases while I was there.
