Do NOT Mess With Texas, Y'all.
Texas gov. shoots, kills 'wily' coyote during jog
"I'm enjoying the run when something catches my eye and it's this coyote. I know he knows I'm there. He never looks at me, he is laser-locked on that dog," Perry said.
"I holler and the coyote stopped. I holler again. By this time I had taken my weapon out and charged it. It is now staring dead at me. Either me or the dog are in imminent danger. I did the appropriate thing and sent it to where coyotes go," he said.
Runners packing in Texas: think about that the next time you see us out on the streets enjoying our run. Well done, Gov'nah.
He's loving this interview. LOVING IT! That's right, we enjoy the legal right to carry guns in Texas, and we DO! He gives one more quotable quote, and it's just for PETA.
~SMOOCH~ Sealed with a .380 Ruger - loaded with hollow-point bullets.
Coyotes can be vicious and Perry did what was necessary; I would have done the same thing, no hesitation. The bonus is the interview and the inevitably libbie fallout in the making. I can hear it now: HORRORS! He carries a gun WHILE RUNNING (um, it's our right). HORRORS! He KILLED a living thing (um, come on a run with us and when the coyote appears, we won't shoot it if it locks on your behind). HORRORS! He shows NO remorse (um, it was locked on his daughter's dog. The coyote's intent was to KILL the dog, possibly attack Perry, not to mention the whole rabies possibility).
It's stories like this one that offset the nastiness politics has become. Man, I hope it's as true as his accounting. If you guys run across libbie fallout from this story, let me know, would ya? I'll be happy to post updates so we can all hare the LOL!
