Letter: Dangerous tranquilizers?

Published: Tuesday, Aug. 26 2014 12:00 a.m. MDT

I have been listening to the radio lately, and something that has happened twice recently caught my attention.

Two mountain lions have wandered into civilization. They were pursued, captured and shot with a tranquilizer gun. They have both died. One death I can see, but two healthy animals dying after being tranquilized is too much.

The Division of Wildlife Resources should reevaluate their tranquilizer techniques, so we can avoid this in the future.
