    Or why CA is broke...

    CALIFORNIA: 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 the 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 for testing it for diseases.

    4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting 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 to implement 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 coyotes.

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

    TEXAS: The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A Coyote jumps out, bites the Governor’s leather boot, and attacks his dog.

    1. 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.

    2. The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

    True Story...the County Commissioner in my old county:

    "I think people don't realize you don't have the same laws in the county you have in the city," Farnham said.

    Wooten said he tries to explain to county residents that the county has no ordinances allowing deputies to deal with many complaints about loose animals.

    "You know, how many times have you tried to explain to somebody, 'We can't do anything about dogs running around,'" Wooten said. "You can tell your neighbor to keep the dog penned up so it doesn't go running around or harassing your sheep but there's not much else you can do."

    "As someone out in Montana said, 'Shoot, shovel, and shut up,'" said Presiding Commissioner Tony Crismon.​
