Day Brightener Or Downer – How Two States Handle The Same Issue

coyote-1820__340State 1

*  The Governor 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 the 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 re the nature of coyotes.

*  PETA protests the coyote’s relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state. 

State 2

*  The Governor 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.

While this is mythical, send me your guess as to which states would fit these two scenarios.
