    The governor left the coyote where it fell.

    "He became mulch," Perry said.




    LOVE IT!

    Only problem I see is that he had to rack the slide. Had the coyote been armed the governor may not have had time.

    Texas gov. shoots, kills 'wily' coyote during jog

    Texas gov. shoots, kills 'wily' coyote during jog
    By JIM VERTUNO, Associated Press Writer Jim Vertuno, Associated Press Writer Tue Apr 27, 7:55 pm ET
    AUSTIN, Texas Pistol-packing Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a message for wily coyotes out there: Don't mess with my dog.

    Perry told The Associated Press on Tuesday he needed just one shot from the laser-sighted pistol he sometimes carries while jogging to take down a coyote that menaced his puppy during a February run near Austin.

    Perry said he will carry his .380 Ruger loaded with hollow-point bullets when jogging on trails because he is afraid of snakes. He'd also seen coyotes in the undeveloped area.

    When one came out of the brush toward his daughter's Labrador retriever, Perry charged.

    "Don't attack my dog or you might get shot ... if you're a coyote," he said Tuesday.

    Perry, a Republican running for a third full term against Democrat Bill White, is living in a private house in a hilly area southwest of downtown Austin while the Governor's Mansion is being repaired after a 2008 fire. A concealed handgun permit holder, Perry carries the pistol in a belt.

    "I knew there were a lot of predators out there. You'll hear a pack of coyotes. People are losing small cats and dogs all the time out there in that community," Perry said.

    "They're very wily creatures."

    On this particular morning, Perry said, he was jogging without his security detail shortly after sunrise.

    "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.

    Perry said the laser-pointer helped make a quick, clean kill.

    "It was not in a lot of pain," he said. "It pretty much went down at that particular juncture."

    Texas state law allows people to shoot coyotes that are threatening livestock or domestic animals. The dog was unharmed, Perry said.

    Perry's security detail was not required to file a report about the governor discharging a weapon, said Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela Mange.

    "People shoot coyotes all the time, snakes all the time," Mange said. "We don't write reports."

    The governor left the coyote where it fell.

    "He became mulch," Perry said.

    Nothing was gonna happen to his little girls puppy! Although I do wonder exactly what "snakes" he's watching out for?

    Exactly the reason I carry when I jog. Never know when a dog will come out and try to attack you.

    In the hill country around Austin -- rattlesnakes.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
