A Cougar is a dangerous animal.

They can be.....
But, it is WE who are endangering them.
These are very wonderful members of the kitty family.
Happy is the person who shares their life with a cat. (Or two or three or........) =^.^=

In the SF Bay Area we have pockets of wilderness surrounded by densely populated areas. Some of the larger wild areas still have a few big cats and once a decade or so, a Mountain Lion eats a jogger or a bicyclist. I suppose that to a kitty cat, the fast moving people look like deer. The solution, I believe, is not to exercise. In fact, I am already following my own advice right now by parking my ample behind here in front of this screen. Yep... in this setting I don't look like a deer at all!!! I feel very, very safe.

Here's a couple cougars with a couple of ladies...

Both must have been hand raised and trained, since no one has yet bred these cats for tameness.

I consider this nature balancing itself. There were far too many joggers!

Ah yes, those hogs will eat anything, since just like humans, their omnivores. Good thing animal control picked it up...

Think that's interesting? Take a look at what this homeowner had staring Him right in the face, not 1 Mountain Lion, but 3...

Visitors: A pack of mountain lions were on the prowl in the snow covered yard of the home belonging to John Vomastic
Anyone home? Man has a terrifying face-to-face encounter with a mountain lion peering into his house in Rocky Mountains

What to do if you encounter a lion

1. Do not turn your back
2. Do not run
3. Appear larger. Raise arms, objects, or jackets above your head
4. If you have a coat, open it up
5. Slowly back away. If you are with others, form a group, you'll be less interesting as potential prey
6. Smile! Show your teeth
7. Make loud, menacing sounds, like yelling and growling
8. Probability of risk is serious if within 200 yards


Face to face: John Vomastic was inside his Colorado home and captured this photograph of one of the mountain lions peering in
