Cool news of the morning: Texas Governor Rick Perry packs a .380 Ruger loaded with hollow-point bullets, scores a coyote.
Texas gov. shoots, kills ‘wily’ coyote during jog
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.
