If two were attacked and one is unaccounted for with a search ongoing, most likely conclusion is a small child was carried off.  I hope that is not the case.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

That article says a guy in his 40's was airlifted from North Fork Rd and Lake Hancock Rd and the 2nd victim was 5 miles away....took off running into the woods and was killed.

Very sad news, but a reminder of the need for predator control.  Sometimes it takes something like this to turn things around.  Goes the same for bears and wolves.  People will eventually wake up to the dangers of not controlling predators.

I would agree but until the general public views it for what it is, most people will just assume freak accident. Proving mismanagement and neglect on the states part is no easy task

As far as I'm concerned this lies squarely on the shoulders of those people in anti-hunting groups who oppose predator hunting and those people in WDFW and government who allow anti-hunting groups to control the narrative on predator hunting in WA. If you are reading this you should hand your head in shame! Sad day for two innocent people, my condolences go out to the families.

A cougar attack I can see, but for it to chase down and kill the second person has to be very rare...
