Time for the enviro-whack jobs to go. Kill these animals and allow them a domain in areas where there are no people.

The man feeding the lions? How appalling! Probably caused the death of this poor man.

I love nature too. But when it tracks me down in my backyard, time for it and anything like it to die.

So much for my tourist dollars up there. Used to go and take my dogs for walks up there. Not now, if the people up there are so concerned about wildlife that they will not protect the people up there.

You honestly believe that the animals in the Gila don't have a right to live there? These homes are infringing on their territory. You hike there because of nature's beauty there. If you take the proper precations, and educate yourself, it is very safe to enjoy the Gila Wilderness.

There is a reason that they were hunted heavily, along with the wolves. They attack and kill people. Welcome to nature.

As far as a "right" I dont think they know what a right is.

These animals are just doing what they have always done, where they have always lived. They don't usually attack and kill people. I believe it has been decades since the last death caused by a mountain lion in NM has happened. Usually people are to blame for these kinds of things. If you don't like it, stay home.

You will get no argument from me on your thoughts about people being to blame for this. I really hate that this man had to find out the hard way what mountain lions are capable of.

That being said, I will not hesitate to pull the trigger on one if I see it in the wilderness at that moment the animal knows very well that I am there and isnt scared.

Not ignorant sir, by any means, just opinionated as you obviously are as well. Go America and freedom of speach.
