Cougar killings: Seattleites can’t lecture about living in danger

I find it hard to agree with letter writer David Glenn’s willingness to dismiss the concerns that people in Twisp have about cougars near their town [“Attacks happen when living close to nature,” Northwest Voices, March 24].

From his comfortable and rather smug perch in Seattle, he lectures the people of Twisp about the consequences of living away from the big city where everyone belongs.

Let’s see what he says one of these years when the people of Boise or Denver fold their arms and snicker about the dummies of Seattle who stupidly chose to live near an earthquake fault and in the shadow of a major volcano.
