(a) Estimated population size and number of puma killed per year in Oregon as reported by Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/cougar/) for 1994 to 2014. It should be noted that the scales for each are different and thus should only be interpreted as showing an increasing trend in each, not the degree of relativeness. That relationship is seen in Fig 3b, which is the correlation of estimated population size with annual number of pumas killed.
