Photo of Dead Mountain Lion, Held by Smiling President of Cal Fish and Game Commission

Bob Coutts emailed me about a photo gone viral on the internet, of Dan Richards, President of the California Fish and Game Commission, holding a dead mountain lion.  According to a 2-22 KFSN story posted at  www.abclocal.go.com, Richards was on a 7-day, $7,000 hunting trip in Idaho when the photo was taken.

As California voters approved Prop. 117 in 1990 that banned hunting of mountain lions in the state, it makes me wonder why this guy is even a member of the Fish and Game Commission, let alone President of it! He is obviously not representing the will of the majority of Californians with his hunting hijinks.  Maybe it is time for the Guv to do a little house-cleaning on that board…

Here is a link to Bob Coutts posting at the VC Star:  http://www.vcstar.com/news/2012/feb/24/fishy-fish-and-game-4904/, and a link to the KFSN story…if you can sit through the short commercial, there is a video of the newscast segment:  http://www.vcstar.com/news/2012/feb/24/fishy-fish-and-game-4904/
