Well another murder of cougars again ! This makes my blood boil, this statement - the cougars came too comfortable into surrounding residential area- who the hell was invading whose home. This is evidently cougar country, and the invasion of people would be quite unsettling and confusing for them.

And what made it even worse, the poor mother came looking of her young and was of course killed too. What a waste of these magnificent animals!

I agree Simone , what kind of conservation office are they running? Conserving people?

Sunday September 11, 2011, 5:58 pm ironic...makes me sick. Who would rather kill 3 gorgeous creatures rather than use their measly little brains & think of a better way like relocating. Ridiculous!

Such sad news. I saw a newscast and the man who was reporting about it was not wearing a shirt!!! It seemed a bit bizarre. It is too bad that people can't learn to live in harmony with nature.
