So I'm out working on the fence on our ten acres this morning and I see a cop car, fish and game truck and a couple other vehicles across the street and down a couple hundred yards.. Lights flashing on the cop car and everything... after 30 minutes or so, they all went further down the road.. When I left a couple hours later, they were down the road maybe a 1/4 mile so I pulled over and asked the cop what was going on.. They had a hunter with dogs there and were tracking a mountain lion that had been chasing horses just up the road from our place that morning!! I had heard rumors that there was a lion around a month ago but never heard anything definitive.. guess it's really there.. Of course our barn isn't finished and nothing is secure enough to protect them from a predator this big.. Here's hoping that they chased it far enough it won't bother my birds or goats!!
