Got hit in the rump with the dart, made a lunge and pulled out and ran off into the hinterland.

Many might not be so inclined to release a long-tail when they are creating so much havoc, but my buddy Dave was in law enforcement in his younger years and plays by the book.

How about let the warden release the cat that should make him happy but then you may not want him knowing where you are setting.

That is pretty much what my friend does....plays it by the book. In this case ODFW personnel. It's a pain though because the whole day is wasted running around making it all happen.

You may not want to answer this but how would they ever find out if it went bye bye in that remote country ... Jon

Yeah, it is pretty big country. Spent 7 days hunting and camping on one mountain range once, saw exactly one other vehicle the entire week.
