Jay Bruce Lion Hunter

See Jay Bruce, California's Lion Hunter, in action in this rare footage from the 1920's. Back in 1912 Bruce was appointed by the California Fish and Game commission as the official state Mountain Lion Hunter. It was a time when "wildlife management" usually meant protecting citizens and their livestock from wild predators. During his 30 years as a hunter for the state of California, Bruce developed a great respect for the wild animals in their habitat, and could be considered one of the early champions of natural conservation.
