South Dakota's 2015 hunting changes, act today please!

Subject: South Dakota's 2015 hunting changes
Sir, Madam, to whom it concerns:
All mountain lion hunting should be stopped until we know the health of the lion breeding population in South Dakota, and the health of the populations in neighboring states expected to provide dispersing lions into our state.
Allowing out of state hunters will commercialize South Dakota's wildlife, over-exploiting an extremely limited natural resource.
A few hunting guides may get rich from allowing nonresident hunting, at the expense of South Dakota residents and local hunters.
Sport hunting increases conflicts for local residents through increased depredation and potentially dangerous encounters with young transient lions.
Hounding has been banned in two-thirds of the United States.
This is an archaic and cruel practice for both wild animals and domestic dogs that should be banned in South Dakota!
Thank you for your attention.
