California Coyote Tale...
by Dan Mitchell 1/14/11,
Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a
nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor's
dog, then bites the Governor.
The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the
movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop because the
coyote is only doing what is natural.
He calls Animal Control. Animal Control captures the coyote
and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases and $500
for relocating it.
He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and
bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.
The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting
checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite
The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish &
Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now
free of dangerous animals.
The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a
"coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.
The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to
better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the
disease throughout the world.
The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the
attack. The State spends $150,000 to hire and train a new
agent with additional special training regarding the nature
PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million
suit against the State.
The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature
trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.
The Governor shoots the coyote with his State-issued pistol
and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP
hollow point cartridge.
The buzzards eat the dead coyote.
And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas
