Makeshift Memorial Springs Up For Slain Berkeley Mountain LionBy Rocky Thompson on September 9th, 2010
A mountain lion shot down in a halo of gunfire by the draconian Berkeley PD in a neighborhood near the Gourmet Ghetto was mourned by city residents.
“May we protect our wildlife,” another person printed out on a piece of paper. “If we save them, we save ourselves. ‘Thou shalt not kill?’ Remember?”
The shooting, which appeared on the front page of the local paper, happened a few days ago when a 100lb female mountain lion oddly made its way into town. Police decided to shoot it at about 3:30am fearing for the safety of transients in the area. The mountain lion made its way through backyards and high end coffee shops before police caught up with it.
