On Wednesday, November 20th, 2013, a cougar was spotted in Whiteside County in rural Illinois.
A farmer was the first to spot this wonderful creation. The farmer locked up all his farm animals and called the authorities. An officer arrived, and the farmer asked for the beautiful animal to be killed.
After talking with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources law enforcement and wildlife personnel and talking with the farmer’s wife, the official decided to kill the animal, and shot it with a gun.
Why do it this way?
Why not realize it’s a living creature?
No where in the article does it say the cougar was attacking. God made that cougar just like He made us. In the Bible, Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” That means He made the cougar too.
Don’t you think that there could have been a much better response?
I do; maybe they could have lured him into a cage and relocated him into the wild or given him into the care of a zoo or wildlife refuge.
There are other things they could have done to God’s beautiful creation, aren’t there?
Can you think of some other options? I hope you agree with me. Thank you.
So let the cougars run wild and free.
