    California vs. Arizona


    The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out, bites the Governor and attacks his dog.

    The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi", and then realizes he should stop; the coyote is only doing what is natural.

    He calls animal control. Animal Control captures 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 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 study the threat of dangerous animals to trail users in the area.

    The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness" program for residents of the area, and another $150,000 trail signage, to warn trail users of the coyote threat. A subsequent budget of $15,000 is annually required to pay public union workers to maintain the signage.

    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 and for letting the Governor attempt to intervene.

    Additional cost to State of California : $75,000 to hire and train a new security agent with additional special training re: the nature of coyotes.

    PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files suit against the State.

    The state spends millions on trial lawyers, and eventually settles out of court, paying $750,000 to PETA (most of which also goes to lawyers).


    The Governor of Arizona is jogging with her dog along a nature trail. A Coyote jumps out and attacks her dog.

    The Governor shoots the coyote with her State-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $0.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

    The Buzzards eat the dead coyote.

    And that's why California is broke!

    Probably not far from what the truth would be if it happened.
