Never before in the history of our country have mountain lions been more heavily persecuted. No matter what they are called locally, mountain lion, cougar, puma, catamount, panther, etc., these magnificent creatures are the American Lion. It is time they were protected and not treated as a pest to be removed at all cost.
Join the Mountain Lion Foundation in its fight to save the American Lion and Stop the Killing -- Now!
Please sign this petition to:
- Ban the recreational hunting of lions on all federally owned or controlled lands!
- Halt the use of federal funds or agencies to conduct lion eradication or removal programs!
- Demand that the Governors of states with existing lion hunting policies emplace a moratorium on all hunts until that state's lion population model and management plans have undergone a rigorous scientific peer-review process!
