Has anyone here encountered a mountain lion?


I have seen their sign many times. My neighbors and my wife have seen them but amazingly I have not as much time as I spend outdoors, I think theyre avoiding me!

Saw one in West Chester PA sauntering across the church parking lot at 2 in the AM. WTF?
By it's size, gait and tail... cougar.
About 40 feet away, a ghost in the night.
Seen bobcats in Texas, no cougars yet.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

I went white water rafting several years ago and our guides told us that the general rule is that if you see a mountain lion out there, it is the last thing you will ever see. They meant it as a sort of warning that those mountain lions were skilled enough to trail you for days and you'd never know it and that they didn't make themselves known unless you were about to be dinner. Fortunately, mountain lion attacks (on humans) are exceedingly rare - even out there in the Canadian glaciers.

I have not personally seen a mountain lion out in the wild, but I did see this massive bobcat in my mom's back yard. We noticed each other at about the same time and he didn't even flinch. Hell, he was staring at me so hard, for a moment I thought he might actually get aggressive. Luckily, that didn't happen, but he was the largest bobcat I've ever seen - he would've come up to my hips had he been standing next to me and I'm pretty tall. I managed to snap a shot of him, but all I had was a shitty phone camera, unfortunately:

Bobcats are cool and fun to watch. We have a male and female that prowl around our property driving my poor dog crazy. The male is at least as big as the one in your pic maybe bigger. Nice photo sometimes you gotta shoot quick, not bad for a phone pic though.

Purina Puma Chow... don't do it.
I kid you not, there is such a thing.
Met a lady that fed the bobcats that stuff at night outside Colorado City.
Worse she had a fearless 10 yo petite daughter...
what the fuck could go wrong?

Life is a lesson you learn it when you're through

Myself and another member were confronted by a pack of aggressive dogs once a couple years back. We were lucky because there were half a dozen of them and two of us. We would have been their newest chew toy additions if they had decided to attack us.


“ I'm facing away from my friend while setting up my tripod. I hear dogs and assume they are behind a fence on the neighboring property because my friend has said nothing. I turn around and there are five very large dogs surrounding her and she is standing, frozen. I have no clue how to handle this one, so I slowly extended my tripod and walked in her direction. I didn't look at the dogs directly, but held that damn tripod like a baseball bat while she and I backed away. Only one of the five dogs directed their attention at me the entire time. They barked, growled, and snarled, but did not attack. As soon as we crossed what seemed to be an imaginary boundary, all five dogs completely lost interest - unless we stopped walking away, then one or two of them would begin a low warning growl and their attention would refocus on us. Needless to say, we did not go back.

This was my first issue with dogs, but I've always known that they can be a real threat. Fortunately, we both made it out alive and unscathed. Just rattled.‘


Here is the entire thread for anyone curious:

I've had a dog and been around dogs since I was little as well. I've never seen a dog be so friendly with people and so aggressive to another dog at the same time.


Most dog pets will associate people as friendlies and other dogs as competition.

Commercial guard dogs are the exception they view all trespassers and strangers as threats and will bark or attack but its not for "no reason" they have a good reason and its instinct and training.

Its funny how little 15lb ankle biters will go nuts and get aggressive when confronted by a much larger and quite obviously much more lethal dog, I think they have an instinct to run a bluff if they recognize they are out classed.

Stray i.e. "loose dogs" are a crap shoot some may get aggressive while others may not.

Go ahead, roll the dice.

My friend had big rescue mutt, Jimbo.
Nicest dog on the planet until he saw/heard a black, motorcycle or another dog in that order.
He go batshit crazy.
Oddly Chet my friend's sister's husband rode a loud Bultaco dirt bike which he would grudgingly ignore.
That's canine tolerance... he really hated bikes.

However in town Jimbo* could be an embarrassment for more reasons than one


*his name had no racist intent that I'm aware of.

Bultacos made me angry too, freaking spainard two stroke carburetors I rode a few never owned one they ran pretty strong, when they ran LOL

You and I are the only ones here old enough to have ridden a Bultaco I bet

Their trials bikes were not so bad because they didn't try to over carburete them, good suspension and a heavy flywheel

Yeah always liked that name, one of a kind.
He competed.
His wife liked to ride too. Still was a lot of places to ride around in Chester County back then... so they did.
They ran strong... he stayed on top of them.
Great suspensions for thier time.
