    From our local paper, the reason the sign was posted in this location:
    "A Colorado Division of Wildlife officer on Sunday afternoon shot and killed a mountain lion that got into a goat shed at a research laboratory on Colorado State University’s Foothills Campus.

    The animal was found in the pen twice and considered depredatory, meaning it had “keyed in on” livestock, Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said. While the giant felines wander into town year-round, mountain lions are spotted more frequently as temperatures cool.
    "

    They are spotted with some regularity in our area because of our location. Ultimately when we continue to build and recreate in their habitat, we should expect some encounters. Having spotted one in this area a couple of years back, I am a bit more cautious, but if I were to stop riding in the areas where these live I would not have any trails to ride. We also deal with bears and rattle snakes in town and on our trails.

    didn't mean to imply you were stupid hope you didn't takeit that way sorry if you did but i think these game officals etc have too much power and not enough resources to back up the things they do like reintroducing these animals.

    No offense taken. I'm pretty sure these animals were not re-introduced to our area, but were in this area first. I believe the wildlife folks around here are just trying to help us all get along. Have a great day!

    Yep. 99% of what I post is within an hour of Danbury, CT, and most of that is within a half hour. Not a lot of vert, but a lot of good tight and twisty technical.

    I love it here. As a former New Englander, I'll take the hot any day.

    Long techy climb, broke my toe, but the descent was well worth it.

    Been there! I hate the climb up to that spot though . . .
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!
