Hang on Sloopy, Sloopy hang on!

A Texas woman told her neighbor recently that she saw a man driving a pickup down the interstate, and a dog was hanging onto the tailgate for dear life.
She said if the pick-up truck driver hadn't been going so fast in the other direction, she would have tried to stop him. 
A few weeks later, her neighbor saw the truck in the photo below at the local Bass Pro Shop. 
The pick-up truck driver is a taxidermist with a great sense of humor. (Taxidermists are a twisted lot anyway.
And it’s not a dog..... it’s a coyote.

Can you imagine how many people tried to stop this guy?

Please calculate the lead you would have to allow a 22-250 while the 'yote is moving at 70 mph...

I know, I have a hard enough time hitting them when they're not hitchhiking.

Let's see, a 22-250 at 70 mph?? Why, that's easy... drop the 22-250, grab your fully auto AR and open up on that fucker... and don't forget to lead him by about 5 feet while you spray!

I had no idea I had family in Texas. Sweet! Looks like the family sense of humor runs strong!

Good story, great picture.

That particular Bass Pro Shop happens to be in Branson, Missouri. I visit every year :)
