Once again, trigger-happy law enforcement can be counted on to take the easy way out. Trapped in a courtyard, a mountain lion is shot with tranquilizer darts, which are ineffective. So then they scare the lion by dousing it with a fire hose? Shameful.
Clearly, the state needs an agency that is properly trained to deal with situations like this. By the way, I don't consider an animal that is gunned down to be "euthanized."
Last I heard, mountain lions were not instructed on how to react to being hit with tranquilizer darts. All this mountain lion knew was that it felt a sharp pain and had to escape.
