Californians voted to ban hunting of mountain lions back in 1990, but that hasn’t stopped scores of lions from being killed in the state every year through such permits, which are issued as a matter of course when a lion has attacked a domestic animal.

Since Proposition 117 passed, an average of 98 mountain lions have been killed each year with depredation permits – nearly four times the average number of lions killed each year under such permits prior to the ballot measure, according to a Sacramento Bee analysis of state records.
