(a) Correlation of percent calves killed by puma with puma kill density (# of puma killed per 10,000 km2 of habitat) for combined data from 10 states with a sport hunt on puma. Data from California are included in the graph for comparison but were not included in the correlation analysis. Fig 6b is correlation of percent calves killed by pumas in Wyoming with number of pumas killed per year for 2004 to 2012. Data are from the 5 years where cause specific predator mortality were available (1991, 1995, 2000, 2005, & 2010).
