Letters: Relocate rather than shoot wildlife

Cougars should have been relocated rather than being shot

Why is it Sooke doesn’t have the resources to relocate wildlife? Killing three healthy cougars is acceptable?

Who do I contact to find out how to raise money to have wildlife relocated instead of killed? I can see having to shoot wild animals acting aggressively or if people were in danger but why hasn’t Sooke put a budget aside to relocate wildlife accordingly as I’m sure it’s not rocket science that this issue would arise?

It’s very sad what we are doing to our island plus they complain wildlife is becoming endangered and yet they continue to displace them and kill them with the excuse they don’t have the money. Something could be done about it, and enough people care to the point I’m sure they would donate money to ensure we stop killing and get relocating, before we don’t have any wildlife left.
