The old rancher said, 'Okay, but don't go in that field over there.'
The Water representative said, 'Mister, I have the authority
of the Federal Government with me. See this card? This card means I am
allowed to go WHEREVER I WISH on any agricultural land. No questions
asked or answered. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?'
The old rancher nodded politely and went about his chores.
Later, the old rancher heard loud screams and saw the Water Rep running
for the fence and close behind was the rancher's bull. The bull was gaining on the
Water Rep with every step.
The Rep was clearly terrified, so the old rancher immediately
ran to the fence and shouted out.....
Your card! Show him your card!'
