Poor Robert it is a sad day when our game managers won't protect a community from an obvious threat. This might have been a community child and it looks very close to that with his disability.

Most telling was the Game and Fish guy’s last comment:“New Mexico has a healthy population of mountain lions, and PEOPLE WHO LIVE AROUND THEM MUST LEARN to take precautions, and avoid dangerous encounters.”(Emphasis added.)
That statement evinces a total disregard for human life and is typical of the neo-paganistic attitude that unfortunately permeates much of the environmental community. The statement came from someone who apparently is a disciple of John Muir. Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, wrote that the natural order is “un-fallen and un-depraved” while lamenting that man is “a blighting touch.” He further wrote than predators should be “blessed now and then with a mouthful of terror-stricken man by way of a dainty.”
Characterizing the foregoing belief/value system as sorry would be charitable. A pox be upon all of them.

I heard there were two lions what is being done about the second one or will they just leave it out to kill someone else? There are some coming into Las Cruces now too. Don't people hunt anymore?

What is the "environmental community doing in the government and game department of the state? Why is this notion being fostered by game professionals?
