poor pussy, stupid people.

A young mountain lion was killed by officials Sunday afternoon after it stalked a mother and her children on a hiking trail in Orange County. Madison Smith and her two children were on the Borrego Trail in the Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park when they encountered the animal. They were able to escape unharmed and called 911.
The mountain lion approached the family close enough that it would've been able to make a meal of one of the kids, but a nearby hiker held the creature off by throwing rocks and shouting. Later, deputies from the Orange County Sheriff's Department and a California Department of Fish and Wildlife game warden found the mountain lion nearby and killed it because of its aggressive behavior, reports the Orange County Register.

The animal is described as a 12-month-old, 60-pound male. Its aggressive behavior was found to be unusual:
Officials will examine whether the mountain lion had a disease that may have prompted its aggression, said UC Davis Wildlife Health Center Associate Veterinarian Winston Vickers, the lead veterinarian on the Southern California Puma Project, which tracks the behaviors and habitats of mountain lions.
Normally, we would not have expected the animal to have yet left its mother, so it does make one wonder if there was an issue there that could have led the animal to behave abnormally,” Vickers said. “But we do not know that.”

End of Sundays ride first time north of Bedford on North Main Divide to first gate and back.

Gps lags a bit. Nice trail caught up with a dude on a new 350exc at the end who came from Silverado.

The area is well known for Mnt lions, rattle snakes, etc. and signs are posted everywhere.
You want to take your kids out to explore, use common sense. Carry Bear spray, an air horn, whistle, hiking pole, it's simple.

I have zero respect for the asswipe who shot the Lion. Unusual behavior? It's a fucking Mnt lion, they're hunters, that's what they do.
Diseased? That's a bullshit tactic to not bring so much heat on the situation.

pussification of america

The poor kitty was hungry and was looking for food...then bam... your head is blown off. All because of cowardly OC pansies that built homes in the wild life's back yard. Pretty lame IMO.

But make sure the gates are closed because that will keep us all safe! And shoot Mtn. Lions because their hungry.

Something wrong with this picture

60 pound cubs don't leave their mothers to wander alone. This MOUNTAIN LION was the size of a 8 months old Lab puppy for God's sake. It was odd for it to be out on the trail all alone. Yes Mom may have been clueless but don't jump to conspiracy theories so easily. You read the same data I did.

I hate hearing when any wildlife gets shot roaming their territory... which is shrinking because of humans.
