    Default Re: Mt Lion attack in Ca

    This catamount was killed on a highway here in CT just about a year ago.
    It's hard to dispute their presence when you have proof like that



    On the other hand, last month I thought I saw one where we were camped.
    It was nearly dark and it just happened to cross my field of vision. This animal was the right size and shape and that's all I could really tell but "that's a mountain lion !" popped right into my head
    The next morning I went and tracked it and found fresh tracks.
    It was then obvious that I was mistaken. This was only a bear. A small skinny bear, but not the lion that I was worried about

    I am often more suprised when people report these sightings to a government person. As best I can tell, rarely is your word taken seriously lest it be known that the public knows more than a goverment person does and that simply can't be allowed to happen. I have told friends when blessed with seeing something rare, but to tell the government....Let them find it themselves, it's what we pay them to do.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
