At the age of 12, Sharon Negri stopped eating meat because "I knew I would never be able to shoot an animal so I shouldn't eat one." Ten years ago, she stopped drinking milk because she saw "how cows were treated on a farm." Now at 30, the self-described "animal lover"--animal rights activist "tends to mean something negative"--is at the forefront of a statewide campaign to ban mountain lion hunting.

Not in 18 years has a sport hunter legally shot and killed a California mountain lion--a secretive, nocturnal predator that inhabits terrain as disparate as the eastern desert, the Sierra Nevada's snowy slopes and the coastal oak woodlands of Los Angeles and Orange counties. In 1987, the state Department of Fish and Game tried to reintroduce limited hunting of the animals, whose population statewide was estimated to have grown to about 5,100.

Refusing to make what one member said would have been a "hasty decision," the California Fish and Game Commission on Friday delayed until April any move toward establishing a hunting season on mountain lions. The commission listened to dozens of speakers for nearly three hours before putting off action on the highly controversial and emotional issue. It had been expected to make a tentative decision Friday on whether to end a 15-year ban on sport hunting of the big cats.

After complying with a court order that it evaluate the environmental impact of a proposed mountain lion hunt, the California Fish and Game Commission on Tuesday reaffirmed its decision to permit a hunting season on cougars. Even if all 190 animals targeted in the hunt were killed, the loss would not negatively affect any part of the environment, the commission said in adopting the environmental report.

As many as 210 mountain lions could be killed statewide if the California Fish and Game Department can convince the Fish and Game Commission to authorize an official lion-hunting season, ending a 15-year ban on hunting the big cats. The proposal has drawn the ire of environmentalists throughout California. The hunting season was proposed last Tuesday, and by Wednesday a coalition of wildlife preservation groups had already threatened a full-scale attack against the controversial proposal.

A coalition of wildlife preservation groups has begun what promises to be a fierce fight against the California Fish and Game Department's proposal to allow hunters to kill up to 210 mountain lions this year. Spokesmen for several groups said they will use testimonials from movie stars, meetings with editorial boards and public service announcements on radio to rally the public against the proposal, which would allow the first sport hunting of the lions in 15 years.

Complying with a court order that it evaluate the environmental impact of a proposed mountain lion hunt, the California Fish and Game Commission said Tuesday that even if hunters killed all 190 animals targeted in the hunt, the loss would not negatively affect any part of the environment. A Superior Court judge in September stopped the start of the mountain lion hunt in Central and Northern California, asking that a full environmental impact report be submitted.

A Superior Court judge on Monday rejected Fish and Game Commission regulations intended to permit California's first mountain lion hunting season in 16 years, and opponents said it is unlikely the state can comply with the ruling in time to start the hunt Oct. 8 as scheduled. "Until the Fish and Game Commission complies with the California Environmental Quality Act there will be no trophy hunting of mountain lions," predicted Michael H.

Despite pleas from sportsmen who want to begin hunting mountain lions immediately, the state Fish and Game Commission on Monday tentatively decided to postpone open season on the cats for at least another year. The commission unanimously voted to postpone a mountain lion season until 1987 to give state game officials enough time to study the animals' breeding, eating and living habits.
