Cougars are on the federal endangered species list. The sole exception for killing on

Since hunting for cougar and bear with dogs or bait was outlawed here in Washington, management by ballot box, the cougar population has exploded and is over carrying capacity in parts of the state. It had the same effect on the deer population as wolves did to the elk population in Yellowstone. A bear and a cougar tag costs a resident about $10 extra here when you buy a deer and an elk tag combo. We have an abundance of both cougar and bear, hardly endangered.
