One Response to Wyoming adopts its first cougar plan

  1. John says:

    I still don’t think that Wyoming is managing for the non-hunter that longs to see mt. lions. Why can’t there by non-national parks that are off-limits to hunting? Until then, the plan is biased to the minority that hunt these beautiful cats.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
