Add your comment re Calif. official who killed a mountain lion in Idaho
See http://www.kqed.org/a/forum/R201202291000 , where people have been adding their comments concerning state Fish and Game Commission President Dan Richards, who went hunting in Idaho, killed a mountain lion, and submitted a swaggering photo of himself holding the animal's corpse to a hunting website. You can add your comment, and you can read other people's comments.
Hunting mountain lions has been illegal in California since 1990, when it was outlawed by voter-approved Proposition 117.

Wildlife Chief Under Fire
Wed, Feb 29, 2012 -- 10:00 AM
A majority of California Assembly members and Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom are calling for the head of the state Fish and Game Commission, Dan Richards, to resign after he was photographed posing with a mountain lion he killed in Idaho. It's legal to kill mountain lions in that state, but not in California -- and critics say the head of the wildlife commission is sending the wrong message. Should Richards resign?
