Letter: Game officials need training, equipment for tranquilizing animals

June 14, 2013 

Cougar, moose, bear -- Isn't it time that our Mid-Columbia wildlife officials add something to their arsenal -- like a tranquilizer gun?

Instead of "shoot to kill," maybe it's time those in our local service office gain the skills and tools that will avail animal relocation.
