    Poor kitty! We should find a way for those responsible for the firing to go to Idaho and feed the cougars. (Insert evil laugh)

    Nice to see that the story is written with such un-biased language

    Interesting that they don't think animal-lovers are regular people.

    I don't feel sorry for anybody that works for the government in Comunistfornia. He got bit by the monster he was a part of. He joined their club, and now he gets his just desserts.

    I think firing him was ridiculous.

    But I have to say that I disapprove of hunting predators unless there's a game-management need for it.

    I have a problem killing something you can't/won't eat just for kicks. If there's an overpopulation problem, by all means, have at it. (i.e. Coyotes in Maine). Other than that, I don't see the point. I've hunted birds a couple of times, have no issues with hunting anything you intend to eat.

    But killing for plain sport, it just makes me queasy. Not telling anyone else what to do or advocating any restrictions, I just don't feel right about it.

    People actually do eat cougar,I've heard it was really good. I wouldn't though,but if I was out hunting elk and a cougar showed up,I'd stick an arrow in it.

    I've eaten Cougar 3-4 times and enjoyed it. I've had a sausage made from Cougar that was real tasty and had burger pattys a couple times.

    And just so you know your issues are none of my concerns. You are free to feel how ever. I on the other hand am also free to do as I please (within the law of course)

    I believe that if there was any danger of losing the population of cougars the Idaho Dish an Game Dept. would curtail the tags and season.

    There has to be another reason, and this was just the most politically safe reason to point out.
