Lions ARE Sacred in Nevada

Some people in Nevada would prefer to hunt mule deer as opposed to feeding them to the lions


A Nevada bill, Assembly bill 241, was recently defeated. This bill would have required that at least 40 percent of the money in the Wildlife Heritage Trust Account be spent controlling mule deer predators. The mule deer is a favorite of some hunters, including Gov. Jim Gibbons, so they want to protect it so as to be able to kill it. Alas, the mule deer must fend for itself.

    With a conservative estimate, I would say that Mountain Lions kill around 150,000 mule deer each year in Nevada.
