whidbey: So many keyboard conservation experts here.It's a FOX NEWS FARKING ARTICLE FOR FARK'S SAKE.Doesn't that say something?
fozziewazzi: Article is missing info. Why is the cougar population in this area so robust? What were they feeding on before the easy meat became available.Also, did the introduced sheep have any experience with cougars, or predators in general?I'd like to think the conservationists know what they're doing, but if they dropped 30 something naïve sheep into an area filled with cougars that need to chase down fast and skittish deer for lunch...what did they think was going to happen?
untaken_name: Maybe they weren't sheep conservationists. Maybe they were mountain lion conservationists. Ever think of that?
Juc: if they want a stable sustainable population I woulda figured that you'd have needed more if you're trying to repopulate a prey animal at least.
