California Mountain Lions
60 minutes is doing a story on it tonight.
You'll have to suffer Sean Penn to get to the Mt Lion story.
I just saw both segments and can confirm the Country is indeed in dire straits! Seems the mountain lions need a bridge over a 10 lane highway because there is too much interbreeding. My my!
Yes Sean Penn is a freak! Interesting piece on the small range the mountain lions have in Santa Monica Mountains nearby homes and parks.
That bridge over the 10 lane would be an awesome "pinch point".
I like the idea of a bridge to encourage cougars to move into the southern California 'burbs. Maybe we can get them to reintroduce wolves in Hollywood, too.
Not one mention of their attacks on people or the fact that you can't hunt them so they have lost any fear of humans...only how cute they are!
I'm betting that there's enough "cougars" in Southern California already.....
They mentioned there was "plenty of prey" but not what that prey was. I haven't spent a lot of time right there, and when I was it was mostly in Beverly Hills, but I don't recall many deer in the Hollywood hills.
We used to do family Thanksgiving at the LA Country Club and there were deer on the golf course.
I love the idea of f---ing up SoCal traffic for months on end while they build an overpass for a stupid cat. It would be sweet payback for the absurd mountain lion referendum that SoCal had a big part in voting in.
they could dart some and move them east. apparently no cougars live on the other side on the Ohio River.
The DNR did introduce some in Michigan a few years back without letting the population know it. After the Cats killed a some horses the word got out. They no longer have mountain lions there and they dont want them.
Yeah, So Cal urban lions are on a steady diet of puppies and kitties. They probably won't include that part.
Studies have shown that they can take up to 50 liberals per year !
Best of Luck, Jeff
