LETTING NATURE WORK: THE ARGUMENT FOR ENCOURGAING THE RETURN OF MOUNTAIN LIONS TO IOWA

As an Iowa resident you are likely to hit a deer with your vehicle once every ten years. Each yeah we see the dollar amounts associated with deer related collisions rise to unbelievable figures. Since 2004 our deer population is actually on the decline. Yet as more and more Iowans take to the roads, deer related accidents continue to rise. Add that to the average repair cost to newer more expensive vehicles and you have yourself a very expensive problem. I suggest we let nature do the work in fighting back. We should be supporting the reintroduction of apex predators like mountain lion instead of being afraid of it.
