In 1985, a study in the Foresthill area recorded 27 lions using about 130 square miles - that is an area that measures 10 miles by 13 miles!

"And a count gives you only the minimum," Dave Fjelline warned. "I knew some lions evaded us."

(Plus the transitting lions, that are traveling through one area to another or a young lion seeking a territory.)

But Fjelline says: "We've got more lions than any other state or (Canadian) province. We've identified densities of six to 10 lions per 100 square miles where the prey base (primarily deer) is there. Three is good."

Hit more deer and the lions will starve.
Deer are declining

The black-tailed deer population in California has dropped dramatically, 45% in some areas, according to studies and the tagging and radio collars have shown the majority of the deer killed were by lions.(DF&G has tagged/collared both lions and deer and have been able to locate both via GPS at the kill.

There have never been any studies or documentation that shows mountain lions in California were in decline or were threatened.

Prop 117 was all ideology and emotion. Non-advocate voters did not have accurate information about the subject.

DF&G studies are showing a negative effect on other species as well caused by mountain lions. They have no natural enemies in California, save for a coyote or bear picking up a lion pup.

It was and is an ideology and emotional issue without basis in factual study.

Saw and got some video of 2 mountains lions behind my house in October 2011 (unfortunately they were quite far up the hill, but no doubt it was 2 lions when viewed with binoculars).

Also had another mountain lion sighting in the summer 2011.

I see coyotes every day and hear them in packs at night. Here is one of the largest I've seen.

Thats funny dude, Commander Bunny has chickens, shoots coyotes with a short 30-06, rides antique motorcycles and cuts his own firewood with a Stihl chainsaw.

No wonder you live in the Sierra boonies. Oops didn't mean to give you away there.
