Do mountain lions in Pleasanton threaten our safety, and how should we deal with them?

Last year, a mountain lion was killed by government officials, in Pleasanton, because it was deemed dangerous. Later, that government department faced serious questioning about the extent to which the animal caused danger and how they chose to deal with the problem. The government kills millions of wildlife animals each year, spending upwards of tens of thousands of dollars doing so. In Pleasanton, is wildlife, i.e. mountain lions near a school, a problem? And if so, what is the most humane, ethical, cost-effective and easy way to solve the problem?
