I'm also with Rsqvet on this one. I'm a meat eating, pest animal shooting, gun owner, but this particular animal didn't really need to be shot. I think it's standard routine to tranquilize animals in that situation. If it was prowling around rabid, looking for something to kill, it'd be a different story. But it was just hiding up a tree. Cougars aren't like african leopards, they're not very aggressive and don't pose a great danger in the couple minutes it takes for the tranquilizer to work, and if it could wander in, it could be driven out.
