    So, are you mad because the cougar killed a Ram (btw, do people eat those or just hang em on the wall?). The cats have to eat too, besides, other than man, what are the sheep's natural predator? Just wondering

    Unless you live in Washington State and feel the pinch of the urban west side vote you will probably not under stand this post and its pictures. Since running hounds for lions was deemed illegal by urban voters, the lion populatin has exploded. Now, we are getting wolves shoved down our throats. Game animals dont have much of a chance anymore due to poor regulation of preditors, lots of hunters, and high harvests by Native American hunters. Ranchers are loosing livestock to both lions and wolves, and there is not a lot anyone can do because some people seem to tie up the court system forever never letting anything get done. If you like to hunt out west, you better plan a trip cause game is gonna get much harder to find unless cat and wolf populations are controled.

    C-Money, Right On!!

    What is worse is the law pasted ending Hound hunting was "illegal" all the way, but our SC judges can't count to 2!!

    WA state has a "single" issue initiative system, the law pasted by the city dwellers Had 3 issues on it. Hound hunting and Bait hunting and Trapping(leg holds).

    It was taken to court, Judges looked at it, BUT couldn't count!! Didn't do their sworn duty to reject it. Should have ALL been removed from the bench!!

    Now the rural areas have to suffer because of educated idiots in the city's!!

    I cant even get started about Bait and trapping. These bans come from the good people that think milk is made at the supermarket. A wolf or a lion to a rancher is like a hacker or a virus to a computer operator. Anyway you look at it, these things get in the way of making an honest living. Trouble is, the Government will track down the hacker or the virus inventor, but will protect the lion and the wolf enabling it to continue to eat up the ranchers livelihood.

    Cat what Cat????? I don't think they like our ranch too well maybe they don't like our cows I don't know what it is but we don't have a problem with them. Even the neighbors ranches... Must be the water in the area they don't like.

    The "3 S" system is the preferred method.

    Cougars are now a general season tag that's cheap and readily available in Oregon, with an open season ten months of the year. This is because we're up to our asses in cougars after a touchy-feely bunny hugger ballot initiative banned hunting them with hounds.

    Yep thats what they do for a living. Without getting caught up in the emotional reactions from either side of the fence, I kind of think they are a pretty cool predator.

    Hunting Mt. Loin is a fairly common sport here in northern NV and the successful hunters almost always use hounds. But even with all that hunting pressure we have an abundance of long tailed cats. We also have lots of prime habitat for them with fair numbers of big game and lots of cattle and sheep.

    Hard to hate a creature that is a better hunter than I'll ever be.

    Jim R,


    Exactly what is your point?


    Is returning nature to its balance not good? Do we kill all the cougars, rattle snakes, alligators and scorpions too? How bout bears and humans for that matter?


    If you can't hang with the indigenous wildlife, then move away.


    Wolves in Yellowstone, gators in Louisiana, eagles and ospreys everywhere is good. Humans anywhere they go is always bad, every time.
