Could the DGIF or U.S. Forest Service have brought them in?
I often wonder: if there are mountain lions in Craig County,and other Virginia counties, why haven’t bear hunters treed them? Craig has truckloads of bear hounds and bear hunters.
“Bear hunters have told me that they tree them and they worry that their hunting will be messed with if they report what it is,” said Horn. So they keep quiet when it comes to dealing with this protected animal.
