Thread Name: BS: Coyote Problems?
Subject: RE: BS: Coyote Problems?
you rarely see mountain lions. i never saw one when i lived in the rockies. when i lived a few hundred miles further south there was a sick and old one that started killing chickens. it likely had lost the baility ti hunt. locals shot it. there are the occasional stories out of the british columbis and alberta rockies of maountain lion attacks on humans. they are c\anny predators and will rarely be seen ntill they kill you. luckily that's rare. howeevr i had a young daughter when i lived in the rockies and i used to walk her to the school bus and meet her to walk back(about a quarter mile) just in case. we did have a deer living in a copse of trees nearby, so i took that as a sigh there wasn't a mountain lion aroundm but better safe than sorry.
i have nothing against maountain lions, they have as much right to be here as me but i'd rather they eat someone esle==like crank-el.
