OK, it's from an email but still good.


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.

1. 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.

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 testing it for diseases.

4. The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and 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 now free of dangerous animals.

6. The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing 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. The State spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

9. PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the State.


Wyoming :

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

And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Wyoming is not.

I love Wyoming too! Especially Yellowstone.

Whoever created the e-mail changed the states. It was originally about Texas. Gov. Perry killed a coyote with a concealed carry handgun while out for a hike. Here is a link to the story. http://http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2010/05/25/2010-05-25_texas_gov_rick_perry_honored_with_new_coyote_sp ecial_pistol.html (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2010/05/25/2010-05-25_texas_gov_rick_perry_honored_with_new_coyote_sp ecial_pistol.html)

That's a great find, PTM, thanks. I'm glad to get the real story, it's even better that it's in Texas, where the Bluebonnets bloom :-)

Your right.. cause in many real world cases.. similar or on a larger scale.. Government has started to exist for the sake of existing. We (as voters) continue to propagate unless arms of our own government due to self centeredness.. and just plain laziness.

wow.. got all serious for a second...
shakes head and grabs a orange slurpee and takes a big slurp to get the brain freeze going again...

Two fascinating facts about Wyoming...firstly, it should never have become a State within the Union...the reason being, when Wyoming applied and was accepted, to exist as a State within the Union your population had to be higher then a certain amount...and at the time (I dont know about now) Wyoming didnt have a population big enough

Secondly...out of the Forty Eight Continental States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) it is one of only Two States that has no Amtrak line. The other one being the neighbouring state of South Dakota (almost due East)
