The majestic Mountain Lion

There is a proposal being put together that addresses this issue that i hold dear.  It is a proposal to put into the books a new way to deal with wild predators that we come into contact with and, more specifically,  its effect on our own wild mountain lion population.

Now, if ever a mountain lion is spotted (even if it is in a thickly forested area), if it is seen, it is shot.  We kill on site.  If we can not find it, we go searching for it to kill it.

Some of these are even better if you read the ones right next to them. Like, the actual real crime makes some of these more ridiculous.

Do not disregard it when you hear some loud low flying airplane outside tomorrow San Francisco!  You need to LOOK UP!!  You get the opportunity to  see one of NASA’s planes with the Space Shuttle Endeavor piggy-backed in a once time in history flying over head to give us one last chance to see her before she gets flown to  to be a part of their permanent exhibit at the LA Air and Space Museum. Get those camera phones ready!!
