Three mountain lions killed after found feeding on human remains in Arizona

From wire reports

Three mountain lions were killed after being found feeding on human remains on a popular hiking trail in Pima Canyon, Arizona, the Arizona Daily Star reported.

The remains were found Tuesday morning, and though the mountain lions are not suspected of killing the human, Arizona Game and Fish Department determined they were a danger to the public because the mountain lions showed no fear of officers during the removal of the remains.
