It went on, and on, and on, like the subject just always seems to do.

At most Kansas Wildlife and Parks Commission meetings the portion that gives the public a chance to comment on topics not on the day’s agenda takes four or five minutes. Sometimes there’s not a comment made.

You guessed it – Kansas mountain lions. This time the request and following debate was on the immediate need for a no-holds-barred open season on the creatures.
