The California Fish and Game Commission has removed its president after he was criticized for killing a mountain lion in Idaho.

Commission members voted Wednesday to replace Dan Richards.

Richards, who was appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2008, has said he plans to remain on the five-member commission until his term expires in six months.
