Yes they were and as the smoke had cleared with this story, the cat was shot at 6 times and hit twice.
That makes me mad
What sort of fool thinks a handgun (9mm or .40 I mean, as I suspect their sidearms are) is the way to put down a loose cougar? You have time to get a long arm, it's not like a cougar is shooting back at you
I need an angrier smiley.
I guess I'll try to reserve judgement (too late..), as I wasn't there, but I'm 99% sure this could have been handled better.
