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 for     the nature of coyotes.
PETA protests the  coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.




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.
