One of them might have shot the cougars attacking a kid. Four-year-old boy in serious condition, two cougars killed after attack near Lake Cowichan.
Oh, the cougars were killed anyway, just much later, when the authorities, “The only ones authorized to have firearms” arrived to not quite save the day.
A four-year-old boy is in serious condition with injuries to his head, neck and arms after being mauled by at least one cougar near Lake Cowichan.
Now guns in the hands of the parents may not have saved this kid, but being unarmed in an area populated with big cats seems crazy to me.
So glad that gun control is keeping the cougars safe from otherwise-armed adults.
And the most convoluted, unclear sentence of the week award goes to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
“It’s fairly serious,” said RCMP Cpl. Chris Manseau. “It’s not completely uncommon, but still very, very rare, just a dangerous situation for everyone.”
