Our next door neighbor just reported seeing a mountain lion drinking at his pond. Another neighbor lost 2 calves, nothing but little parts left! Most everyone in our area including us has cows and I am pretty sure that everyone will keep a look out for it and try to shoot it. I would not hesitate to shoot it but I am not a very good shot. Is there any way to trap something that big without worrying about trapping a belgian, llama, mule, or cow? We have a perimeter hot wire next to the barbed wire and woven wire fence. Would it help if I ran a wire about a foot above the ground? Would a mountain lion climb over or go under a barbed/woven wire fence? We have not lost anything to it. But I would like to prevent a loss if possible. I will have to let them out tomorrow because tonight some of our guineas and ducks ran away. If I get them all in tomorrow night I may leave them locked in the hen house. We have over 100 birds and I might not notice one missing if it did not leave feathers. We also have some chickens in portable Salatin type pens. Do you think it would break into one of those? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
