Well, done here we don't have the government saying you couldn't have seen a mountain lion, or a jaguar, or an ocelot, or a jagaurundi, or a ... in other words, we have lots of large cats.  :D


The first time you see the paw print of a Jaguar it does make you wonder though, they can be up to ten inches across - and if I spread my hand, from thumb to tip of little finger is only nine. Do that yourself and imagine a print larger than spreading your hand. I would really not want that to take a swipe at me...
So, how did I end up here anyway?

Sorry chain, think you got me and Swamp Donkey mixed up ;D.  You can blame us for the big cats if you want, but I'm with Norm on this one, don't give em the chance to kill me first, I'll do my part to make sure we don't send you anymore, besides you already have all those Tigers to contend with  :D :D.  A guy in Spalding, a neighboring town shot a wolf a few years ago and made a big deal of it, they made an example of him and he got in a lot of trouble.  Now you never here of anyone shooting them, but of course they're aren't any here anyway ::).

The only way you'll know if I get one is if Patty's sporting a new coat.  :D

Well, this thread is timely. I just went out to one of the plantations because of a report of sheep damage in the trees. I saw a picture (not very good) and it seemed odd that the sheep damage was nearly 6 feet up a tree.  ::) So, I went to see. Well, unless the sheep have claws, I don't think they did the damage.  :D Definitely a mountain lion, or a young jaguar. There were about 12 trees marked, all about eye level for me.
So, how did I end up here anyway?

We have alot of Mountain Lions in N. Ca and for us that grow alfalfa or young trees they are excellent deer control.   :) :)
