Coyote Sam Tries To Stop Mother Lode Round Up

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Coyote Sam and his gang have come up short once again in trying to stop the Mother Lode Round Up.

The crew rode their horses into downtown Sonora Thursday to steal a $100,000 stimulus check from CAO Craig Pedro.

“We gonna get it and we gonna hide it so the Round Up will not exist this year,” said Coyote Sam. “That money is here to help the Round Up, and when we get it there will be no Round-Up.”

The gang was successful in disrupting a sponsors luncheon in downtown, but they were chased away shortly after by the Sheriff’s Posse.

Mother Lode Round Up is set for May 9-10. For several more photographs of the event check out the photo gallery in the multimedia section here on
