Officer was wrong to kill wild animal

Thank you, Bob Wolf, for saying what I was thinking [“Kill cougar? There must be a better way,” The Reader’s Voice, Nov. 29].

That cougar was a beautiful animal. It could have been relocated.

No – a trigger happy IDNR person had to show off and shoot it. Shame on him.
