I am appalled at the handling of this incident by the Dept. of Fish and Game (San Diego County?). There was no apparent reason given in the article that accounts for the officers being "forced" to shoot and kill the cougar.
This is a very sad and frustrating outcome borne out of ignorance and incompetence. The woman with the dogs displayed an equally appalling lack of intelligence and respect for the natural world.
I do not want to hear of future incidents such at this. Wildlife protection organizations will need to investigate this and all similar incidents to insure unnecessary destruction of wildlife by the Dept. of Fish and Game does not go unchecked.

member-CBD-CA is a tool! Don't blame the reporting on the officers in charge. By law, since the animal went into a residential neighborhood and tried attacking pets, and entering a house, it would have been deemed unfit for release and since it was a full grown and running they had to make the decision to either let escape or shoot to kill. they had to think about the well fare of the PEOPLE over a god DAMNED animal!
