There was no reason to kill this lion, other than lazy officers. The cat should have been shot with a sedative and moved. They hide behind public safety because they are to stupid or lazy to do it right. Call Fish and Game and have them capture the animal. If the animal had moved or tried to leave from under the truck it was under that might have justifed the shotting, but the cat didn't do that.
