California vs. Texas

The Governor is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

California:

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

He calls animal control. Animal control captures coyote and spends $200 testing it for diseases and $500 upon relocating it.

He calls veterinarian. Vet collects dead dog and spends $200 testing it for diseases.

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

Running trail gets shut down for 6 months while wildlife services conduct a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is clear of dangerous animals.

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

State legislature spends $2 million investigating how to better handle rabies and how to possibly eradicate the disease.

Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack and for letting the Governor intervene.

Cost: $75,000 to train new security agent.

PETA protests the coyote relocation and files suit against the state.

Texas:

Governor shoots coyote and keeps jogging. Governor has spent $0.50 on a .380 ACP hollow point cartridge. Buzzards eat dead coyote.

Any wonder why California is broke?

  4. Texas does win this one. There are laws being passed in several states that allow people to shoot feral cats instead of other people feeding them so there is great controversy over this subject. I think it would be horrible if they let people shoot cats because who can tell the difference between cats that have a home and family with truly feral cats.
