Texas gov. shoots, kills 'wily' coyote

Wild Animals: Don't Mess With Texas (or Alaska) Governors!

The Headline:  Texas gov. shoots, kills 'wily' coyote during jog

The Summary: When Texas governor Rick Perry went jogging with his Labrador retriever went on a jog in the country outside of Austin, Texas, he spied a coyote eyeing his dog like it was a rack of lamb. Perry pulled his .380 Ruger equipped with a laser sight and promptly killed the snarling coyote before it took a chunk out of his pet or his leg.

Jeff’s Take: I’m pretty impressed at Perry’s wherewithal with a handgun, especially when the blood and adrenaline were pumping. Heck, I can barely hit a wily coyote with a .22-250 Remington 700, a 14X Leupold and a Johnny Stewart predator call, much less my carry gun. And kudos to you, Gov., for not being afraid to exercise your right of self-defense and property. I hope other wimpish governors, like Mike Bloomberg, for example, who would’ve had to have his team of bodyguards fly to the rescue, are taking notes.

The Pro-Quote: "I did the appropriate thing and sent it to where coyotes go," [Perry] said.

Alternate Headline: Gov. Perry: That Dog Don’t Mess Around!
