Mountain lions are savage beasts

In the late 1980’s it was determined by a relatively small group of financially and politically biased scientists and their lobbyists, that the population of Mountain Lions (aka: Cougar, Puma) in California, was dangerously low. So they launched a massive media campaign to convince Californians there was a genuine problem, giving rise to the 1990 California State legislation that provided a ‘protected’ status for mountain lions. However, there was no overwhelming body of scientific evidence supporting such a claim. And if there had been such credible evidence supported by a collective of unbiased and objective wildlife biologists, forming a majority opinion, mountain lions would have surely reached the benchmark for obtaining ‘endangered species’ status, and would be listed as such today. That was not the case.
