The terrible part is poor Robert Nawojski was autistic and probably just out routinely looking at the sky. I was so upset when I heard this becuase this lion stalked people for two weeks before this happened and may have stalked people after it had killed Robert. It is still on the loose and children are being kept inside needless to say. I think something needs to be done policywise to keep wildlife from being allowed to become fond of human occupied areas and if they do remove them swiftly before someone innocent is hurt.

I agree the mountain lions need to be controlled as much as possible. People who are out in the wilderness and do the same thing over and over again set up a pattern allowing a cat to stalk you and wait for you. Same thing they do with deer, etc.

They are safer viewed in the zoo. ABQ Zoo has a great exhibit. If you are lucky one actually will walk over head of the zoo visitors in a wire mesh walkway that runs over the path.

Don't forget, you are in their neighborhood. This is what happens when we start encroaching on the wildlife habitats of animals.

How many mountain lions are killed by humans each year in New Mexico? This is the second death of a human by lion attack since 1974. Give me a break.

He was probably a beautiful person, of this I do not doubt. But this was a beautiful animal as well. Two losses in this case. We all live on the same planet...we're bound to run in to each other every once in a while. Who's to say which of us is living in the wrong place?

Do not trust the Game and Fish. How in the world can they tell from a carcass of a dead person what kind of animal killed him. It was probably a wolf that killed this poor man but they will not admit that their "wolf" program is a complete failure!

that is horrible! doesn't make any sense, how the heck do they know this was the cat? did they scrape his teeth for the guys meat? I mean come one, in the wildlife areas if you're living there, we're technically living in there home!so how come we dont' do this with humans who commit purpous crimes with knowledge and plotting to kill not animal instinct? amazing....
