What a shocking nightmare for those people. Shame on the FWC for letting that cat loose. I can't imagine anything so horrid as my animals being ripped and eaten daily and with nothing I could do about it. Those people need to put the bait into a large steel cage and catch it, and padlock it. You know, really makes no sense, except FWC wanting the bogus endangered species funding. In fact, Steve and I watched a special on The Weather Channel yesterday evening about a big cat rescue in Florida. The hurricanes were approaching, and they had to lock-down the cats in small strong runs. During the first hurricane, a large tree fell on the tall perimiter fence, thus making it possible for a cat to escape the compound IF the cat's run was also smashed and opened. The second inside fence was allready down. The 2 ladies who ran the rescue, at that point, had to stay on guard over 30 hours outside in the hurricane, to patrol and make sure the cats were secure in their runs. 35 big cats. The ladies were carrying shotguns. They said over and over, IF one of the cats escaped it's run, it would have to be shot and killed by one of them, period. They knew this. Both of the gals said it's the law and also the only thing to do. That even though they cared for the cats and loved them, some even bottle raised in their homes, a loose cat with a downed perimiter fence, no exceptions, no trying to catch, just shoot to kill. They said that even though they loved the cats as pets, it was not worth even one human being in danger. They said hurricanes and severe storms make the cats crazy and not tame anymore. The 2 ladies & a daughter had to stay out there at their own danger too, trees & power lines down all over their compound, trees falling all the time. 30 hours carrying shotguns in the blinding rain and wind. And they were ready to shoot to kill any cat that got loose. And then another even worse hurricane came a few days after that one! It makes NO sense that that cougar has a right to live there. It's a wild cougar from out west. These big cats at the rescue were pets, but law says they must be shot if there is any danger of them getting loose into the public. What an outrage that the cougar with the radio collar can roam and kill at will. Same thing is going on the Missouri. The petting zoo people should trap the cougar and take it to the rescue ladies down there and not say anything. The rescue ladies would agree it's absolutely wrong to let it roam loose. The show was called Animal Storm Survivors.
