Agree. These stories are a sad reminder of how humans are shot first and brag about it later.

Real sporting to shoot a cougar that runs from a dog. Can't we learn to respect these animals and give them some space? Or, have someone trap it and move it.

If you had young children around, would you want wild dangerous mountain lions around your property? If your ok with that, you probably aren't responsible enough to have kids and yours should be placed in a safer home. Let me guess your a back woods hillbilly with a internet connection.

Everyone will react differently in a strained situation like this.
I think my first instinct would be to protect my family and kids, but not kill the cat.
Most big animals are afraid of small fast moving barking dogs and or kitties.
I would have call authorities and let them handle the cat in the tree....I am not one to kill wild animals....after all, they were probably there first.
One needs to make a choice on where one wants to live and deal with the problems.
If a person knows about wild animals in the area, and wants to raise a family, then there are other choices.

I have no kids so I would be happy to have the big cat around, plenty of area to roam and a few miles down the road it.will have plenty of bjrth control failures to eat.
