Trapper Brought In To Protect Governor's Dog

For former Gov. Gary Locke, the problem was bats. For his successor, Christine Gregoire, it's bigger predators that threaten her small dog.

In recent months, a professional trapper has removed a raccoon and an opossum from the grounds of the governor's mansion on the state Capitol campus, and State Patrol troopers have run off an undetermined number of coyotes.

Gregoire has said Franz, the family's 13-pound Pomeranian, is not allowed out alone for safety reasons.

I remember when Washington State banned the use of hunting dogs to find cougars. It was a total failure, advocated by the animal rights wackos, and the shelters filled up with unwanted hunting hounds.

Amazing, when the favored politicians need the help from dogs, they can get it. But, when we need it, they regulate the living daylights out of us.
