Letter to the Editor: Bring Back Hound Hunting for Cougars


In regards to all the cougar sightings in Lewis County, when is the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife going do the math? They claim a cougar will kill a deer every nine days. Multiply that by the 2,500 cougars they say are in the state, and that’s a total of 90,000 deer a year.

Where there used to be deer everywhere, there are none. Now bring back hound hunting before it’s too late, before it’s some kids waiting at the bus stop.
