- CRITTER TALK
- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
Your remember Rick Perry, the loopy governor who advocated Texas secede from the union. Well he showed his warrior-like courage when, while jogging, shot and killed a coyote that menaced his daughter’s Labrador while he was jogging on a trail near Austin. According to Newser, Perry, who was out without his security detail, says he always carries his Ruger when jogging in undeveloped areas because he’s afraid of monster attacking snakes.
“I holler and the coyote stopped. I holler again,” Perry tells AP. “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.” It was a clean kill and the coyote didn’t suffer, he added.
Ed Update: A short while later, according to an MMA source, he told friends that he turned the poor critter into “mulch.” You gotta love those compassionate Texan hearts.Click here for reuse options!
