A Malibu rancher who got a permit to shoot a mountain lion believed to have killed her 10 pet alpacas said Thursday she never planned on having the cougar killed and hopes that it is relocated instead. Victoria Vaughn-Perling made the declaration after a storm of protest erupted over the possibility that the male lion named P-45 would be killed.
