GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bill White has a message for pistol-packing Texas Gov. Rick Perry: I'm not afraid of coyotes.
The former Houston mayor said Friday that he's encountered coyotes while riding his bike through Houston's Memorial Park and that they always run away.
Earlier this week, Perry told The Associated Press that while out on a jog with his daughter's puppy, he killed a coyote with a pistol that he carries on his run, loaded with hollow-point bullets. Perry, who has a concealed weapons permit, says he jogs with his laser-sighted .380 Ruger because he is afraid of snakes.
