Mountain Lion Killed Near My Bear Spot
When I am hunting for bears, one of the things constantly on my mind, especially when leaving my treestand is the threat of mountain lions. Where I hunt, there is an abundance of lions, but I have yet to see one. Turns out, one of the local farms has been visited by one and thirteen animals on the farm were killed. Here is the story on the lions demise.

A mountain lion that took a heavy toll on the animals in an Oak Glen petting zoo was killed on Christmas night when it returned to a sheep carcass to feed.

The 7-year-old female lion had been raiding the petting zoo at Riley’s at Los Rios Rancho apple orchards. In all, 13 goats and sheep died, said Devon Riley, who owns the business in the mountains east of Yucaipa.

  1. We have them here, too, though the DNR tries to say otherwise.

  2. On my last hike about up there I cam across tracks in the snow from the night before, good size ones too! It pays to keep your eyes open, that's for sure.
