    If a person tortures dogs, they are quick to charge. But if they're protecting their dog, what's the deal?

    :lol:

    Load of crap if you ask me.

    I know we have to live with nature, however this is a community of sort and once wildlife enters my domain its over for the wildlife.

    property

    Well, this case involved some people living temporarily on government-owned wilderness land, not their own land, and not in a residential neighborhood.

    Can you kill any dangerous animal that you see on your own land? No. It has to be a threat to you or your property.

    Now, since the mountain lion came right up to the family's trailer where they had been living for some time and snatched the little dog right from under their supervision, that makes the mountain lion seem pretty bold, and dangerous. It lost its fear of humans. (Okay, maybe it's not supposed to have a fear of humans, if it's above us on the food chain. But it's supposed to have a fear of ARMED HUMANS, who clearly outrank it).

    I'd rather be judged by 12 than nagged to death by one wife for letting the damn cat eat the dog.

    Re: property

    If it is on my land where my children play, it is a threat and WILL be dealt with as such. The DNR can try to convince twelve of my neighbors it posed no danger.
