Tell South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard to ban the eating of big cats in his state. There is not such a food crises in the United States that we need to start cooking and eating Mountain lions- and to do so undermines wildlife conservation,

As a SD resident, I find this appalling and embarrassing. Shoot wildlife with a camera, not a gun. The majority of people come here to see wildlife, not kill it. In my view, a goal of state government is to kill predators to support elk, turkey, pronghorn and deer populations for hunting by humans.

Thanks Cher, N&S and posted on F.B.. A former S.D. and Rapid City resident, I'm reminded of one of the reasons I left the beautiful Black Hills I continue to love - some of the human attitudes and actions. Unfortunately, in my wanderings and years, I've encountered many more of the tunnel visions/selfishness of humans towards other lifeforms and the entire earth. Luckily, I've encountered many humans who do have understandings and caring of how life should and can be balanced in wild country, a neighborhood or this planet - with careful respect and good knowledge.

When I read stories such as this I cannot help but think that it is simply another example of rich people wanting to make themselves feel important by doing something different. Maybe what they should do is to donate some of their money to help save animals rather than supporting the killing of them.
