But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.-Thomas Jefferson

There has been 2 taken from the timber here in S.E.Iowa around me this last year. I spotted one in a tree next to my dog pen one evening but it left when I put light on it. Have not seen one since. But in town, I am 2 miles out, they have pictures of a female and 2 youngsters walking through back yards. My neighbor lost a goat about a week after I seen the one in a tree but have never found where it may have died. But I do not take the dogs out anymore at night without being armed with a rifle.
A couple of the "Off the grid" YouTubers have trail camera photos of cougars in Eastern Oklahoma. These contributors all have small goat herds. They think the cats are responsible for the missing doeling and buckling goats on their farms. I wouldn't be a bit surprised.
I jave no problems with predators... until they interfere with my livelihood or my safety. Then they gotta go. "Proper management" be damned.
The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.
