Letter: Let Colorado Parks & Wildlife handle mountain lion situation

The CPW has always been good with game management. They know if the mountain lion population is healthy or if relocation would be advantageous. The dirty truth is where you relocate them becomes somebody else’s problem. So where do you relocate them? It doesn’t matter where because they will become a problem for those people who live in that area. We choose to live here knowing that there are mountain lions, moose and lately tons of turkeys. If you are not comfortable with this environment then go live in the big city where you are isolated. Let the CPW handle these situation as they deem fit.
