Tale of a Coyote

The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature
trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor, and attacks his dog.

1. The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

2. He calls animal control.
Animal Control captures coyote and bills the State $200 testing it for
diseases and $500 for relocating it.

3. He calls a veterinarian.
The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.

4. The Governor goes to hospital
and spends $3,500 being checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting
his bite wound bandaged.

5. The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is free of dangerous animals.

6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness" program for residents of the area.

7. The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

8. The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack somehow and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.

9. Additional cost to State of California:
$75,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special training re: the nature of

10. PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files suit against the State.

The Governor of Arizona is jogging with her dog along a nature trail. A Coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.

1. The Governor shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

2. The Buzzards eat the dead coyote.
And that, boys and girls, is why California is broke.
Bruce you forgot one.

The fired security agent would get permanent disability from the state after filing a claim for job stress. And dont forget he would get his full pension and healthcare benefits for life.
don't forget the happy ending Bruce....and then California get's bailed out by the Fed's and we all live happily ever after.
Yup, and you could have replaced California, with Connecticut and it would have been just as accurate.
I thought Coyotes were drug dealers.... either way they should be treated the same. Shot and left for dead.
Thanks for posting.

If we could legislate common sense we could be the USA again.

how much longer will it be until "the weather" isn't enough to keep working people in that state any more?
