A friend of mine used to own 172 acres near the intersection of 19 & A in Shannon County. He saw a mountain lion sunning himself on his front lawn once. His dogs (2 Rottwielers) who would usually tear ass after everything invading their turf, were strangely disinterested.
We also saw bear tracks, scratches on trees, and bear poop. Never saw the bear.
He sold the property to the State about 7-8 years ago.
Black care rarely sits behind the rider whose pace is fast enough.
Fact is, I like roads. I like to move.
