Mountain Lion Reintroduction Management

Problem pumas to be hunted down – This Arizona Daily Star Article picks up on one of the aspects of the Bighorn Sheep plan that has seen little coverage – killing “specific individual mountain lions which prey on bighorn sheep”. There are comments from a variety of groups but not really much substance/interesting specifics (what was Mountain Lion population in the 80s/90s and what was their impact on the Bighorn population then, how large a Bighorn population is needed before this policy is phased out, would there be a maximum number of Mountain Lions acceptable to kill for the Bighorns, are Mountain Lions killed after a single Bighorn kill or multiple or…) – at least it is getting coverage.
