Did you know? Today is the start of mountain lion hunting season in Wyoming. This is a ‘sport’. Sport is defined as “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment”. What skill does it take to chase a wild animal with a pack of hounds, force it into a tree or a cave or a cliff edge, then shoot it from just feet away? How is this ‘entertainment’? The answers lie in ourselves and whether we are going to stand by and let a minority to whatever they want to our wildlife when the animals are held in the Public Trust for us all.
