  3. A puma is bigger than Monty, whom I often address or refer to as “small cat.” People fear cats of any size, it seems, which contributes to the persecution of feral cats– even ones Monty’s size.

  4. When a brown bear made his way from up north Wisconsin down to Milwaukee in 1995, they didn’t kill him. The bear was tranquilized and returned to the wild. I would think a bear is just as dangerous as a big cat. People fear cats so much (even small domestic cats) which is probably why the cat gets killed and the bear gets relocated. Generally, it seems to me that people don’t fear bears enough but they are overly fearful of big cats.

    • Yes, I think people are overly or irrationally fearful of large cats. It is probably the tiger, lion and jaguar and their long history. The puma is much smaller than the tiger and lion though and it is not a ‘big cat’. It behaves more like a pussy cat!

  5. Yeah, that is crazy. We have our Animal Control Officers use tranquilizer-darts to take down any wild beast that comes into the human venue. I have to point out that due to the large number of [idiots] people that own ‘exotic’ animals in California, I wonder if it was someone’s pet who escaped. Most animals that go into populated areas are looking for water. We just had two adorable bobcat kittens found in the backyard of a well-to-do vacationing family. The Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center of Arizona located the nest under a tool shed and staked it out for several days. The mom never returned. She could of been scared off by the scent left by all the people (including all local news stations) who had entered the backyard. So they had to take them. They were in good enough health, but we are all sad that they couldn’t be returned to the mother. Local animals experts say the mother was most certainly looking for a good source of water and they had a big swimming pool. Makes sense.

    Still, it baffles me that the very liberal California population would stand for such treatment of animals. We have a strict policy here in Arizona, where animals are treed by dogs and tranq’d, relocated to a place with a good source of water and food. They also mark them so they can see if they make return trips. I know in other states they do have return visitors, but we don’t have any. Not enough bears to worry about anymore.

    I wonder if the actions will cause any change. I sure hope it will.

    • Thanks Dan for an Arizonian insight. I tend to get angry at unnecessary killing of wild cats. It is so careless and thoughtless to grab the gun. Humans are meant to be smart! Could have fooled me. Arizona seems to have a more enlightened approach which surprises me because I thought it was a right-wing state.
