    re: Hemlock

    After byu & the recent textbook certification flap, I hope the animal control officers weren't state employees/agents of a state owned University.

    What a beautiful, majestic animal. I'm so glad he was given a second chance at survival and was relocated. I hope he stays in the wild.

    Glad they saved this beautiful animal. Congratulations to the animal control officers. Megafauna belongs in our environment.

    The first problem was responding to Chris B. I don't know if he is LDS or not, and it really doesn't matter. Chris B represents only himself. As for the rest of us, the majority on both sides of the Utah/BYU debates would be friends in real life. The banter back and forth is intended to be for fun - however, you are right - some people take it to the extreme on both sides of the fence. I tend to ignore those types.

    I am from a LARGE family, and I am the only one who is a Utah fan, all the rest root for BYU. I don't say anything on these posts that I wouldn't or haven't said to my brothers in our back and forth sparring.

    Peace to all!

    All it wanted was a steak from the steak house. The word is out in the wilds. This is a natural for PIRA people, buy him a steak.

    Are non-LDS people not taught to be nice? What does being nice have solely to do with LDS or not? You're ok with non-LDS people not being nice but LDS people need to be nice? So bizarre the logic of some people.

    There was nothing off topic or disruptive about my comment!

    "That's a big cat!

    Is this the mascot for BYU Independence?

    "The BYU Wild Cougars"!

    I am in trouble again for responding to at ChisB for indicating that thew cougar was put down which means that the cougar is not living. I am not lds and I've seen a lot of offensive stuff get through the desnews editor. I think this is hypocritical since LDS are taught to be nice. You guys need to be nice to each other. A lot of non lds read this paper.

    That's right - shoot it with a tranquilizer and return it to it's natural habitat, Utah County.

    I guess "Cougar Territory" officially extends at least as far north as Sandy.
