so there have been 3 sightings of a mountain lion on the ranch i live on, 2 of which were when the cugar was killing/eating a deer.



so one of the people who lives here says we should let it pass by, it is most likly that it is just passing through, and she stated all the facts about the likely hood of anyone geting attacked(which is very low)



but then some one who is a hunter who lives here, was saying that all this stuff about living in harmony is a bunch of "BS"

he thinks that we should get a traper in the catch it or just shoot it

this guy makes me so mad, i just want to hit him ove the head with a fraying pan.



oh and my family saw a bobcat it walked all around our house, we see a bobcat hanging aroud our house every cuple of months

Whoa that is tough. It's a frightening situation for most people so I see where they might want to side with hunter guy.

keep an eye on your pets....Cougars have been known to attack humans but there must be some way to peacefully resovle this so the cougar isn't harmed. Humane society has article on living with cougars http://www.hsus.org/wildlife/urban_w...h_cougars.html

Wow, that's so amazing! It's such a bizarre concept for me to imagine living alongside dangerous animals, I live In New Zealand where the most dangerous wild animals would probably be pigs.
