Re: “Fire Dan Richards, the Cougar-Killer

Look folks. I realize this is California but already the State is spending thousands of our tax dollars to dispatch "problem lions" . I have no desire to kill a lion but I also have no desire to pay for something that could of been solved with regulated hunting. Private citizens willing to pay cash for a guide, a tag, and a place to shoot a lion could make money for the State rather than costing the State. Its simple wildlife management. Lions need X amount of acres to survive, if the acres are not available, the lions must move to new hunting grounds. Often these areas are also home for people and their domesticated animals. Thats where our tax dollars go to work; Often times killing a young lion that was pushed out by older, stronger lions. Now apparently prop 17 was passed because less than 40% of the voting public wanted to save the lions. If this is true, why is it costing the State to kill lions today? Could it be that the lions have exceeded their habitat capacity? It all sounds good on paper but the reality is we need to keep wildlife populations controlled and properly managed. I don't think the attack on Richards had much to do with shooting lions...our government does it several times a year and we pay for it. No, I think its someone with lots of money
