Tell Gov. Inslee to protect our cougars

Action: Wildlife Conservation

October 1, 2015   Action Alert ID# 280

 

Stealthy, solitary and highly adaptable, mountain lions are incredible survivors. But even so, they're unlikely to escape the killing campaign Washington wildlife officials have in store for them -- unless we speak up.

At its April meeting, the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission voted to increase cougar hunting quotas by a staggering 50 percent in several key areas, catering to special interests who want to eliminate predators from the landscape.

But a 13-year study in the state has shown that hunting at these aggressive rates will actually tilt the cougar population toward younger males, who are more likely to engage in livestock conflicts than animals in stable, older populations.

Although commission members admit this vote was made without public notice and are unable to point to any science to support an increase in hunting rates, the commission has rejected our petition to overturn its decision.
