We keep reading about mountain lion sightings. And we are becoming desensitized to them. At one point In the future, someone will be attacked. And its then that everyone will say "why didn't we do something?"

I love animals. But I love people more.

We need to act and have the sheriffs department shoot, trap, and kill mountain lions that are entering residential areas.
