Last week we told you about state Sen. Bill Stouffer's desire to eradicate mountain lions from Missouri with his bill that would allow the animals to be shot without reason.

On Thursday Stouffer's bill moved one step closer to becoming law when it was read for a second time and referred to committee. But not so fast...

This week Craig Lanham, a St. Louis area police officer and volunteer conservationist, fired back launching an online petition that he hopes will derail Stouffer's legislation from ever becoming law.

"The Senate bill reeks of those unfortunate days when people shot bisons from train windows for amusement," says Lanham, who became an advocate for the Missouri's small population of mountain lions after raccoon hunters in Ray County (Stouffer's district) shot a treed cougar last year and were not prosecuted.

"They need to know that the world is watching." Thumbs Up
