The lion attack report page also showed pretty convincingly that hunting rules from state to state and era to era have had absolutely no impact on mountain lion behavior towards humans.  And that with various special use permits and hunting down "problem" lions, more lions are hunted down now than at any time in history.  

If you've seen Yosemite bears at work, you can see how cubs "learn" human interaction from watching their mamas.  It doesn't work that way for mountain lions, apparently, and that makes sense to me.
