Abstract

The Cougar Management Guidelines—First Edition was reviewed in the Book Review section of The Wildlife Society Bulletin (Anderson 2006). These guidelines were conceived at the Sixth Mountain Lion Workshop held in 2000. Although member agencies of the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) commented on drafts of the guidelines, few, if any, of the concerns raised by member agencies were addressed in the final document. The WAFWA recognizes the need to review and improve the management of all wildlife species; however, when comprehensive management guidelines are developed, all stakeholders—particularly the agencies with management authority—must actively be involved. The WAFWA does not endorse or otherwise sanction the Cougar Management Guidelines. The decision to incorporate Guidelines recommendations rests solely with the individual state or provincial wildlife agency.
