    huge live trap! conservation agent may be able to help need to trap and relocate! He or she will be a problem to everyone soon if he hunts farm animals.

    Wow a mountain lion is really dangerious.I am surprised the DNR or game department won't trap it themselves. Will they let you shoot the mountain lion or poision it? I am uncertain I could build a cage to hold it unless I had a welder & alot of money. Hope to hear back that mountain lion promblem is solved. Best wishes

    *It is the responsibility of the person with the predator to determine the legalities of what they do and that person will take ultimate responsibility. BYC does not condone illegal acts.

    Yes, you'd best be careful up there in Garden Valley. Not too long ago a mountain lion ate a lady who was messing with some cubs on the river near Auburn.

    Gov agency if this does not work next since they will likely "get to it" when they have the time... second.
