Sounds like livestock owners will need a "shoot, shovel & shut up" policy.
BTW: For a long time the OK Wildlife Dep't. was very protective of cougars, the four legged kind. You didn't dare kill a cougar for any reason. One day is was tracking a wounded hog down a ravine when the hair on my neck stood up. Looked on the high bank about 25 yards away: There sat a big male cougar switching his tail and licking his face like i was his next meal. Drew a bead on him with my muzzleloader, fired and he rolled into the ravine.
An acquaintence had some horses killed and mauled by cougars. The guy called the Wildlife Dep't. and told them he was going to kill some cougars. They threatened the guy and said those cougars had tracking collars. Strange thing, the Wildlife Dep't. claimed they never imported those cougars.
Finally the legislature passed a law allowing us to legally kill cougars that are a threat to livestock or humans. We're supposed to call the game warden after killing a cougar: i won't bother with that.
