I believe the biggest reason mountain lions are protected in this state is because they are solitary, nocturnal hunters. Very few are ever seen by people. The left wing majority of people in this state thinks that because they've never seen one, they must be rare, and endangered. If they ever do see one face to face, they might think differently.
As for the wolves, people love them because they are photogenic, and look like dogs. Organizations like the Sierra Club and PETA can use photos of wolves to generate millions of dollars. Money they will use to lobby against hunting. Never mind the fact that wolves are cold blooded pack hunters that devastate every ecosystem where they have been reintroduced.
Unless there is better education here in this state regarding predators, and their impact on the ecosystem, we don't have a chance in hell.
Even with education, the lovely people in this land of fruits and nuts wouldn't want you to shoot a cute cuddly mountain lion. When do they actually let facts and science be the basis for legislation?
You all have it 100% correct!california will let the kids get eaten first,and they still wont change it.lions need to be hunted ,there out of control like rats!
In 1866, a grizzly weighing 2,200 pounds (1,000 kg) was killed in Valley Center, California, the biggest bear ever found in California, unsurpassed until John Lang shot the world's biggest bear — 2,320 pounds (1,050 kg) — near his ranch by Canyon Country, in 1873.
I will be the first to volunteer and spearhead a live trapping program here in Wyoming to relocate our darling wolves to the land of the Kardashians! If they want to protect them then they can have ALL of them, oh, and they can foot the bill for the program. The rancher that I rent my house from was sitting in my kitchen the other day having coffee with my wife and I and telling us how many lambs and calves he has lost this spring to wolves and grizzlies, the number was way over one hundred on lambs and fifty one or two on calves. He figures that it was mostly wolves due to the sign (tracks) left but this last week has been battling three different Grizz on separate parts of his spread. I truly feel for those of you hunting brethren living on the left coast. That is the reason I left Michigan, too many crazy liberals. I think Garrison Keillor put it best; "If you are under thirty and do not have liberal leanings then you have no heart, if you are over thirty and still a liberal then you have no brain!"
Then I see there are loons out there that really are working on an effort to restore grizzlies; truly is the land of fruits and nuts out here. I want to say it was on a site called "counterpunch". I have got to get out of here
I suggest that we start the "Pet for a Day Program". The program will be open only to PETA Members, HSUS, Members, actors, actresses, and know nothing politicians. Each selected applicant will get to spend 24 hours in a locked cage with his or her choice of a wolf, mountain lion, or a grizzly!
