Why isn't the title for this piece, "Humans Move into Mountain Lion Territory, Depriving Them of Denning Sites"? That is the reality--we moved into their back yard. Fortunately the owner of the home had a welcoming attitude toward them. My question is what happened to them after the week? Were they scared away by all the attention? Where did they go?

Yeah did you not read the other article? mother & cubs are very dangerous. Just because you are curious you could put yourself and the mountain lion in danger!!
Mountain lion with cubs will attack if they feel threatened. Look to You tube for a mountain lion attacking a brown bear!!
