Mountain lions overpopulated

By From page A5 | November 23, 2012

EDITOR: My first up close sighting of a cougar happened at the Folsom Zoo in the 1970s. I was watching it, wondering how anyone could kill such a beautiful beast. It was gazing off into space and I was thinking that it should be released into the wild. Suddenly the big cat’s eyes glowed just like my house cat’s eyes did when it spotted a bird. Turning to follow its gaze, I saw my 2-year-old running up to the cage. I realized that if the beautiful big cat was in my backyard that I could definitely kill it.
