Bad Ass

May 28, 2014

A couple from Montana were out riding on the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion a Mountain Lion decided that he wanted to stalk the dogs…(you’ll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very, bad decision on the cat’s part.

The guy got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs.
With that, the mule took off and decided HE wanted a piece of that lion. That’s when all hell broke loose for the lion.
As the lion approached the dogs, the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it to the ground by the throat.

The mule then got down on his knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air again, walked back over to the couple (that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride as if nothing had just happened.

Fortunately, even though the hunter didn’t get off a shot, his wife got off these four pictures

A body this time

January 4, 2011

I have posted stories about mountain lion sightings in Missouri on this blog over the last couple of years. I also remember several stories I read about mountain lions in Missouri before ever starting this blog.  I am not sure why I am drawn to such stories. Perhaps it is all the time I spent riding the Katy Trail (pre-Harley years) sometimes alone. I always wondered if my small container of pepper spray I carried for dogs would ward off a big cat like a mountain lion; fortunately I never had the opportunity to test that theory. The below link will take you to the newest sighting and body recovery of a Missouri mountain lion in case you too are curious about such cats in Missouri:
