Even with a bachelor’s in wildlife biology, I cannot answer all of those questions with any accuracy. What I do know is that states that allow lion hunting have far fewer instances of human and livestock attacks and still maintain a healthy population.
I also know that both lion hunting and bear hounding have been cancelled in California because of liberal, political pressure and not based on biology whatsoever.
It’s sad that we now have to “manage” our wildlife but it’s a fact that we do. Predator numbers have to be controlled and there is no reason whatsoever to put it in the hands of government, rather than “sport” hunters.
No argument between us fellas. We all seem to be on the same page basically.:D
