Grug think this is because Californians destroy state. Grug think Californians mismanage anything they get hands on and should be prohibited from moving to any other state. Grug think they not gonna learn lesson and make everyone else suffer as much as them. Grug know this already happening in Texas. Texas tribe needs to attempt armed revolt or lose rights to tyrant berry pickers.

It sounds like the game wardens need to start a massive relocation program in that area. They need to put out live traps to catch all of the humans and take them out of the counters home range. As for the pets. Perhaps the homeowners should stop putting cougar snacks in their back yards. Schnauzer unattended in yard = cougar snack.

California has the most people complaining about Climate Change, and yet they are the worst stewards of their environment in the US. Even New Jersey does better. This event was partially caused by people's encroachment on land that was recently wild and the failure of water and fire management in the state.
