    Default The Coyote Principle


    THE COYOTE PRINCIPLE


    California
    The 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 wound bandaged. 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 re the
    nature of coyotes. PETA protests the coyote's relocation and
    files a $5 million suit against the state.

    Texas
    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 $.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 is not.

    I was going to say government contract, but then realized that on govt contract they would probably be $5.00 ea. ;-/

    Very informative post................besides it has humor, LOL.

    Just read today that the rats are taking over in France near a well known museum. Seems the powers that be have put out poison to kill the rats. Animal rights people are taking up the poison so the rats won't die.
