犯三次即可合法處死

美國聖莫尼卡山的美洲獅是受保護動物,但當地有一隻雄獅因三次捕食同一財產者的家畜,該財產者成功申請合法處死這隻雄獅。雖然這雄獅是在這法例覆蓋範圍外捕殺了這些家畜,但當地漁業和野生動物局表示,該財產者證明已用盡方法保護自己的財產,所以獲批許可證。當區美洲獅的棲息地被市區發展破壞導致生境破碎,僅存的細小群族裡只有兩隻已認知而有繁殖能力的雄性,其中一隻就是這隻被合法處死的雄獅。保育團體擔心這群族近親繁殖問題會更加嚴重。

Mountain lions are protected species in the Santa Monica Mountain. Recently, one male was killed legally because it harmed livestocks owned by the same property owner for three times. Even though the incidents took place outside the area covered by the State policy, the California Department of Fish & Wildlife explained that the property owner had already tried to use non-lethal means to protect the property before getting the permit for killing this lion was issued. Mountain lions in that area are threatened by urbanization and habitat fragmentation. there were only two known breeding males in this small population, and this male lion was one of them. Biologists that study this group of lions are working on the inbreeding problem will get worse.
