Texas Governor Perry goes jogging with a gun and takes out a Coyote…..

My first question is why does the Governor have to carry a gun?

My second question is where is his protective detail?

My third is why is he jogging where he could get attacked by wild animals?

Ok…..enough…..

The picture of him with the gun is pricless…even in Texas…..

"Don't attack my dog or you might get shot ... if you're a coyote," Texas Governor Rick Perry told reporters after taking down a coyote that attacked his Labrador.

[ Don’t attack my dog or you might get shot … if you’re a coyote,” Texas Governor Rick Perry told reporters after taking down a coyote that attacked his Labrador.]
Pistol-packing Republican Rick 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 carries a .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.

“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,” Perry said of coyotes.

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.

A concealed handgun permit holder, he carries the pistol in a belt.  Perry said the laser-pointer helped make a quick, clean kill.
