He’s Just a Pet
Like with most things in life, some animals make better pets than others. We highly doubt anyone would consider an ethical pet owner if they caught a mountain lion and kept it chained up in their backyard.
The fact that their neighbor had a mountain lion was scary enough, but what made it worse was that the animal was allowed to roam free and bother the neighborhood kids. When this person’s spouse shared the story of how everyone casually treated the situation at the time, they were floored.
