KUDOS TO: VERNON WEIR

for his letter to the Las Vegas Sun:

TARGET HUNTERS
NOT MOUNTAIN LIONS:

“What a great idea. Let’s shoot mountain lions because the bighorn population is in decline, dropping “by at least 50 percent.”

A whopping seven bighorns have been killed by mountain lions. Arizona hunters, however, were issued 72 bighorn tags.

O wait, I have a better idea. Let’s reduce the hunters. Just seven less tags would equal what the mountain lions were taking.

Or how about reducing tags even more. Do you think eliminating the bighorn tags entirely might result in even fewer bighorn deaths? Duh!”
