Killing Mountain Lions in Missouri

Missouri State Senator Bill Stouffer has introduced SB 738 on the Missouri Senate floor. The bill would allow anyone in Missouri to kill a Mountain Lion for any reason. Mountain Lions are recolonizing Missouri after the last one was killed in the 1920's. Some say they have never left. In 2006 Mountain Lions were stripped of their state endangered species status offering them little protection. SB738 will promote killing them like vermin through out Missouri. Who is willing to stand up with me and say this is wrong? The picture was taken South of Flagstaff, AZ. It was at a highway rest stop.  Arizona boasts of it's Mountain Lions. Missouri should take lessons.
