Today’s patrol/field trip. . .Haley Hills

Maricopa 101: A study of geology, anthropology and human smuggling. I originally set out this morning to locate stray dogs that have been killing livestock. I found no signs of these animals and decided to make my way out to an area commonly known as a lay up area. These are places where human smugglers stash illegal aliens before transporting them to another location such as a drop house in Phoenix. These areas are most easily identified by litter and human feces.

This place in particular was also home to millions of mosquitoes. Apparently, these insects prefer Mexican food as I somehow managed to avoid being bitten. I would be wishing I were back in Mexico after spending a night at this place. Human smugglers (their fellow countrymen) see their “human cargo” as nothing more than a load. They could care less if they are left to drink filthy water in a mosquito infested area. Hell, even if they die, there’s more where they came from.

I’m sure the “Wetback Store” on the other side of the border doesn’t stock bug spray. For those unfamiliar with illegal border crossing, merchants in Mexico operate stores that cater to people intent on coming to the United States via unlawful means. These stores sell shoes, backpacks, water jugs and other items deemed necessary for the long trip through the desert.

Haley Hills is a mountain summit in Pinal County in the state of Arizona (AZ). Haley Hills climbs to 1,890 feet (576.07 meters) above sea level. Haley Hills is located at latitude - longitude coordinates (also called lat - long coordinates or GPS coordinates) of N 32.967828 and W -112.180422.
Anyone attempting to climb Haley Hills and reach the summit should look for detailed information on the Haley Hills area in the topographic map (topo map) and the Haley Hills USGS quad. To hike and explore the Arizona outdoors near Haley Hills, check the list of nearby trails.
What are the Haley Hills and why are they so important?
The Haley Hills -- a small mountain range and box canyon -- is located in northwestern Pinal County in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. While not as large or well known as some of the surrounding ranges such as the Sierra Estrella and the Superstitions, it is still an ecologically significant area of public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a subdivision of the United States Department of Interior. Rural mini-ranches and small farms skirt its outlying fringes to the north, east, and south. The Vekol Wash
If the human smugglers and illegal aliens continue using this area, it will most certainly be destroyed. This is one of the few places I’ve found that has water and is still heavily treed.

Instead of bussing the illegal aliens that get caught back to Mexico, we should make them walk back so they can pick up all of the garbage they leave behind. What do you think they will do with their trash when they move next door to you? Well, you can look along my next door neighbor’s fence to get the answer to that question. Calling them “human pigs” is only insulting to pigs.

Incident: Dogs at large. . . .livestock killed!

There are those that think that allowing a family pet to roam at large is no big deal. It’s really only a minor offense and shouldn’t be treated as a crime. These people are so wrong. This is a deadly serious issue. Predation is a real and costly problem for farmers and ranchers and has been for centuries.
As I’ve stated throughout the year, dogs at large have become a serious problem in the Thunderbird Farms/Hidden Valley area. Once again, an incident involving several loose dogs and livestock has occurred. The thing that irritates me the most is that this attack could have been prevented if dog owners acted responsibly.

Pinal County Sheriff Incident Report – 7/29/09
090729049 No Code Entered ANIMAL CONTROL
Incident Address : 53000 BLOCK OF W HAWKINS RD MARICOPA AZ
Time Reported: 11:57 Time Occurred between: 11:53:01 07/29/09 – 11:57:18 07/29/09

Note: The animal shelter is nearly an hour away from the incident location. I’m almost willing to bet the dogs were gone by the time somebody arrived at the scene.

This sheep killing is only a couple of miles from my home. The pit bull described in my previous blog could have easily been one of the six dogs involved. Of course the pet owner would say, “My dog would never do anything like that.” That would be the same as me saying, “I wouldn’t use violence as a means to an end.”

Dogs are social animals and roam in predatory packs. When “Spot” leaves your yard, he will instinctively hook up with other free roaming dogs and do what comes natural, HUNT AND KILL! This is exactly what happened yesterday. A group of dogs killed livestock.

Dogs and wolves are genetically identical:

The dog Canis lupus familiaris is a domesticated subspecies of the Gray Wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The domestic dog has been one of the most widely kept working and companion animals in human history.

School is still out and children are often outdoors. All one has to do is substitute a child for a sheep and one can see how serious this could have been. Dogs don’t distinguish between animals and humans when on the hunt. Adults are not even safe from a pack of dogs. To the dogs, any animal is potential prey.

Domestic dogs inherited a complex social hierarchy and behaviors from their wolf ancestors. Dogs are pack animals with a complex set of behaviors related to determining each dog's position in the social hierarchy, and they exhibit various postures and other means of nonverbal communication that reveal their states of mind. These sophisticated forms of social cognition and communication may account for their trainability, playfulness, and ability to fit into human households and social situations, and these attributes have earned dogs a unique relationship with humans despite being potentially dangerous apex predators.

To those of you that think I’m nuts for carrying an assault rife to my mailbox, “How many rounds do you think you will need to kill six dogs that decide to attack you?” I can guarantee, it won’t be like shooting paper targets at the firing range. I’m hoping that I can do it in less than 30 rounds before I have to get that spare magazine out of my back pocket and reload.

The Pinal County Animal Control officers are not properly equipped to handle this situation. They need rifles capable of taking out targets from 100-300 yards away. I have yet to see an officer with such a rifle.

Since I have plenty of free time, I will be patrolling the area in question for the next few mornings. I will also attempt to identify and contact the sheep owner. I think we might have a few things to talk about. I honestly believe that all able bodied gun owners in my neighborhood should assemble for the purpose of hunting these dogs down.

I am more than willing to donate my time, gasoline and ammunition to see these dangerous animals neutralized. I’m sure the sheep owner has discovered that dialing “911” or contacting “the authorities” proved to be useless. This is a situation where that motivated individual and his rifle should come into play.
In Arizona, it's legal for people to hunt down and kill dogs that attack their livestock.

3-1311. Dogs killing or chasing livestock; liability of owner; classification
A. If any person discovers a dog killing, wounding or chasing livestock, or discovers a dog under circumstances which show conclusively that it has recently killed or chased livestock, he may pursue and kill the dog.
B. The owner of a dog is liable for damages caused by the dog chasing livestock. In the case of a dog killing or wounding livestock, the owner of the dog is liable for damages to the owner of the livestock equal to three times the value of the livestock killed or wounded.
C. An owner of a dog who intentionally or recklessly allows or causes the dog to:
1. Wound or kill livestock owned by another person is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor.
2. Chase livestock owned by another person, causing injury to the livestock, is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor.

Thunderbird Farms: Saturday, July 25, 2009. . .Here we go again.

Remember that wannabe thugnut Mestizo from my previous posting? (link below) It seems that he’s still letting his pit bull roam at large. Despite citations, fines and my insistence that he conform to the local laws, he still thumbs his greasy nose at authority.
These are the same type of people that cry, bitch and moan when a motorist hits their dog and doesn't bother to stop. I will be looking forward to the day when I see this dog decorating the road. I'm sure the local vultures will enjoy the convenient nourishment.
Once again, I have contacted the Pinal County Animal Care and Control. I will more than likely be having another interesting week ahead of me. As always, the offender will claim victimhood and I will find myself on the defensive.

Habitual offender. . . . offends again and again and again. . . .

This is yet another prime example where diversity and multiculturalism proves to be harmful to our once great nation. This is happening all around us. When will the rest of you wake up?

My email to Pinal County Animal Care and Control: (edited)

To whom it may concern,

Here we go again! After 16 years, there is no end in sight.

You are already familiar with the pit bull in the above photograph. Her name is "Princess". "Princess" is supposed to be 4 homes west of me. She was about 1/4 mile out of her yard and not under the care and control of her owner. Obviously, if you are getting a photograph in an email from me, this dog is at large and its' owner apparently doesn't care about his pet. As we already know, this dog's owner is a habitual offender. He obviously believes the law does not apply to him. By my definition, he's a criminal scofflaw.

This is the same dog I complained about on or about January 1, 2009. The same "at large" pit bull that deposited a dead animal in the middle of my back yard.

The owner was cited, according to the animal control officer I spoke with. I guess this offending dog owner must be quite wealthy with the ability to pay fines or he would keep his dog at home. Perhaps, this offender thinks all bets are off after six months. I'm sure this offender has not forgotten the last incident, if the dirty looks I get from him every time he drives by my home can be used as a gauge.

I also observed "Princess" at large on Saturday, July 18, 2009, but didn't have my camera in hand. She exited her yard via an open gate and was roaming eastbound on Val Vista Rd. Do you see a pattern here? I see a pattern of bad people behaving badly all the time. Despite multiple visits from your officers, these people are still making my neighborhood potentially unsafe. As before, I still carry my gun to my mailbox and when I perform yard work. I honestly don't think the day will ever come when I will leave my firearm inside.

I'm still seriously thinking about putting those leg hold traps out in my back yard. I'm curious as to how may stray dogs are really in my neighborhood. Although it may sound a bit morbid, I could keep count by putting their heads on sticks along my fence for all to see. Back in the day, bounty was paid for vermin. The kills were proudly put on display so that the entire community would know that something was being done to correct the problem.

It seems that 21st Century law enforcement techniques are not working as well as they should. "Proactive" is the latest buzzword coming down the pike these days and I think it's a joke. The criminals are laughing too. Maybe we should be taking a lesson from the 19th Century.

No sooner than I get one problem "corrected" for the time being (Bonefield), another one comes up (thugnut Mestizo). More should be done to educate Pinal County residents about caring for their pets and respecting their neighbors. The only lesson I teach is, "Back off! Keep your dog out of my yard or I will kill it. Mind your own business and leave me alone." Unfortunately, most of the people that live around me must be learning disabled or something.

I have come to the conclusion that it's hard to force people into becoming "good neighbors". I will gladly settle for "terrified neighbors" and consider myself lucky. Considering, I have what appear to be dope fiends and thieves for neighbors, they deserve to live in fear. I hope they spend every day of their disgusting lives looking over their shoulders.

I knew well in advance that this would become an “ongoing problem” because ALL of the other problems went the same way. This is what happens when Mexicans, Hispanics, Mestizos or whatever they call themselves live amongst White People. They almost always follow a predictable path of offensive, criminal or socially destructive conduct. They come from a culture that promotes and honors uncivilized, dishonest or otherwise unacceptable behavior (i.e. Jesus Malverde, a Mexican "patron saint" of crime). They refuse to adapt to the rules and customs of their host nation. Our misguided government wants us to accept them unconditionally with open arms. I say, “They’re all crazy!”
