Insatiable Jesus: I don't care how old it is. A mountain lion should be shot on sight.Are we really wanting to live with cougars in our midst again? WTF? These things are not cuddly little kittens, they will kill a child if given the chance. My friend in CA says they are already a problem where she is, they like to sit in trees and jump onto bicyclists, she says for some reason bicyclists seem to really set them off. Wait until one wanders up into a backyard and gobbles a five year old. Probably won't make any difference to the anthropomorphic animal rights crowd.
Alys: I do a lot of backpacking through the Sierras and in the local mountains around Los Angeles, and mountain lions are the only thing that scare me. Black bears are cowards and will generally only attack you if you do something very stupid to provoke them, but with mountain lions you never see them coming. They just jump out of the bushes, chomp down on your neck from behind, and then it's lights out.They embody all the spite and misanthropy of regular housecats, in a size large enough to eat you for dinner.
