I fail to see any controversy in the loss. Sad the Mt Lion was put down though.

Yep.
And additionally... with all the negative stuff floating around with the AWB pending, current administration, etc... sometimes we just need a laugh.
Sad about the pup, but things happen. He's in doggy heaven.. cats probably in hell.

Not that the mountain lion did anything wrong... cats are just evil/plotting to kill me.

Quit crying like it was your dog. The mountain lion was doing what a mountain lion does. Kill small animals.

The fact that you think talking about a mountain lion doing mountain lion ****, in the mountains, is somehow "hippie babble", shows how far off your liberal-O-meter is.

Acknowledging that people are encoraching on the territory of mountain lions, and creating the encounters, is a typically conservative attitude. IE conservationism.

But keep throwing out the "hippie" card, you might get it right one day. You sound like a typical city-dweller, absolutely certain that how you define conservatism is correct.

Sucks someone lost their pet but IMO it also sucks that the mountain lion had to be put down. However if it was my dog and I saw the attack in progress I would've dispatched the mountain lion myself. Contradictory...?

I think any dog owner that sees their dog being attacked is gonna freak out.....and shoot, if they can.

Being a lap dog in snagglepuss' territory carries an occupational hazard of being eaten. That said, eating my dog carries an occupational hazard of becoming a rug.

This may be related to the duality of man, I guess.

Understandable, but a citizen would likely be cited for shooting the lion to protect property (the pet), whereas the wildlife officer can do so in his discretion and under the law.

I figure that if a mountain lion is close enough for me to shoot with a handgun, it's justifiable self defense. What's the 21' rule for a lion?

That is a great story of a heroic dog. He did his job of protecting his owner. If the owner had been walking without his dog, he might have been the one dragged into the brush.

I say good doggy. Shed a tear for the owner's loss of a pet and the dog for protecting his owner. The owner should get another dog if he is going to continue walking in mountain lion country.

I am sure the dog and owner would rather the dog protected his owner by scaring the lion off with barking. Unfortunately the dog was not a big enough caliber for the job.

Yep, and further, celebrating that the mountain lion was put down is even worse. Let's see: it's a non-human, mammalian predator, the numbers of which are dropping every year. I've a great idea: let's kill a few more of them!

I say: whoever decided to trap and kill that lion needs to become the meal for the next one.

I pointed it out because justification isn't a given simply because the animal takes a pet, or by proximity alone.

Wienerdogs don't have the self preservation instinct to back down from a fight when they are clearly out sized, they stay in the fight.

True. However, unless the lion is moving away I would have every reason to fear for my life, and for those around me. Last time I saw a mt lion, it was around 10 yards away. It vanished before I could draw.

Jokes aside, I don't think anyone is celebrating the loss of a pet, or the lion. Maybe it's different in VA but lion populations have increased substantially here, enough to increase license numbers by 400 this year.

The lion hunting and taking a pet in a subdivision had to be put down because it is the nature of predators to return and hunt again at the site of successful predation. The scenario would repeat with other pets or people getting hurt. It was the only responsible course of action for the wildlife officers whose job is to protect both wildlife and the public.

But then, maybe you'd like to volunteer to test predation science? That lion would eventually tire of eating little wieners.

Humans are at the top of the food chain around here. When I'm in the woods it's my territory.

I love dachshunds too, but you as the master need to be willing and able to protect your own property.
