Chihuahuas Confront Cougar in SoCal Garage - KTLA
Cougars have a natural fear of canines, so it porbably didn't know they were until they started barking. Still kinda funny.
Killing it....not so much.
Would have been even funnier with the other type of 'cougar'...
Did they really have to kill the Moutain Lion? What was doing exactly that brought up the words "We'd hope it would return to the wild" to imply that didn't want to do just that?
That's both hilarious (the part about the dogs), and sad at the same time (pretty much the rest of it). They had it cornered. Shouldn't have been that difficult to hit it with a tranquilizer dart. The only reason they should have killed it is if it was about to attack someone. I find the "They had hoped to return it to the wild." line pure BS. There are a number of things I think should happen to the cop who shot it, mostly dealing with pure agonizing pain. I'm bound to sound like I'm overreacting, but I'm an animal lover (though not quite PETA type of animal love, lol).
It's hilarious and saddening at the same time. I'm laughing at the part about the chihuahuas, but crying at the cougar. D:
Yeah I don't get how "Wanting to return it to the wild" means "Fuck the tranquilizers, shoot the damn thing!"
They shot it three times with a Tranq gun and it still ran away. And it's a common known fact that wild animals, once they start becoming familiar with an area, will eventually return. Meaning that if they just let it run off into the woods, it would have been back and potentially killed something or someone.
With animals you can't just sedate them and throw em in the woods down the block, you have to transport them to a completely different area, usually a sanctioned wildlife preserve of some kind (i.e. a national forest) for not only their protection, but for the safety of people in it's original area.
Sad that they had to kill the cougar. There are some weird stories on that site, like some kid flushed a puppy down the toilet! >< And a kid arrested for killing cats.(disturbing)
Correction, they shot AT it three times, and by the sounds of it, didn't hit it once. As for what they would/could have done with it after tranquilizing it, it wouldn't have been all that hard to relocate it to a much safer area.
What about Genozaur?
Anyway agree with everyone, shame about it being shot really. How can you miss a cougar with three tranqs? Unless you're trying to shoot with your feet.
you dont mess with the chihuahua
They really failed at their job here.
