out and attacks the Governor's dog, then bites the Governor.
The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizeshe should not 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
The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from thecoyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.
The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000survey 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 her dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps outand attacks her dog.
The Governor shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and keeps jogging. TheGovernor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.
