Ex-NFL player Derek Wolfe says he’s faced a ton of backlash after killing a mountain lion that was allegedly wreaking havoc in Colorado … saying there have been more than 200 complaints filed against him — despite the hunt being 100% legal.
The former Denver Broncos defensive end described the harassment he’s experienced in an interview with Tucker Carlson on Monday … saying he “can’t believe what’s happened to me” following last week’s hunt.
“I can’t believe that going on a legal hunt, doing something legal, by the book — they’ve had 200 calls to Colorado Parks and Wildlife trying to turn me in like I did something wrong,” Wolfe said on Fox News.
“[I] did nothing wrong. Everything’s legal.”
Wolfe explained mountain lions have become a serious issue in the area … claiming there have been 23 attacks on humans since 1990. On top of that, Wolfe says 15 dogs were killed by mountain lions within a 30-day period in an area near Boulder last year.
Of course, animal lovers have been infuriated with the whole situation … with some claiming the NFLer should have left the cat alone. But, the hunter says Colorado Parks and Wildlife approved of his plan to kill the cat … and he went about the whole thing the right way.
