    Is it okay to clothes-line a mountain lion?

    So yeah, suddenly those threads about cougars ain't so funny. Today my neighbor's dog ran off into the open spaces that abut our property, and he went looking for it. Found the dog chewing on this not far just on the other side of the ridge -- probably a baby deer, the second carcass we've found up there in the last month. I jog up there with my dogs a lot, and I ride not far from here almost every day. Freeeeeky.

    I wonder if the mountain lion clothes-lined that deer. Or just went directly to the rear foot rake de-bowel technique?

    Deer yes but not baby deer, mountain lions kill 1 deer a week. this last week while elk hunting my nephew was sitting watching a doe deer lay under a large poderosa tree when he stood up to leave the deer ran off with in a few seconds a cat jumped out of the same tree . If he had sat there longer he would have witnessed the lion kill the deer. after that he said he was a little nervous .

    what's even more freaky is that you brought it home and propped it up on your deck next to the BBQ.

    Hey, waste not, want not! Me hungy!



    (The neighbor brought it down so he could take it to the dump to stop his dog from wandering up there. I just shot the picture.)

    We figured it wasn't that old from the size -- hard to tell from the picture, but the rib cage wasn't all that big. Maybe not a baby, but definitely not a buck. The last one we found was much bigger.

    It does seem like some meat is still on those ribs.

    One time we were camping and riding up at happy jack and my dog wanders into camp with an elk spine and shoulder. The meat and tendons haging on that thing kept him occupied for days. Well - that and rolling in cow pies kept him occupied for days.

    the two worst smells I've ever experienced:

    1) our dog who rolled in dead fish in utah on a road trip.
    2) same dog rolled in dead sea lion in california


    wassup with rolling in dead things, dog?

    Sure, it's much smarter to just leave it out there to attract bears, coyotes, etc. and risk an encounter with our dogs. Brilliant idea!

    Man, my old dog did the same thing with a huge dead fish once -- took off at a sprint across the beach, then stopped and plopped down right in the middle of it and just flopped all over. Loved every second of it. What is up with that?
