This is great news to see a mountain lion. Hopefully there are more than we thought. They need to be protected.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING !!! My, He Looks like a Big Kitteh !!!
Not Starving, for sure !!!

You Folks in America are so lucky to have Mountain Lions to
enjoy seeing in the Wild.! (also Bobcats & Lynx, I believe)

Here in OZ, the only Type of Kitteh (Feline) we ever see,
usually from a distance, are well fed FERAL Wild Cats.

Sadly, they are killing off our native Lizards & small Mammals.!!!

A lot of them can trace their Generations back, to at one time
being the Pets, of Highly Irresponsible Humans !!!

Those Lazy, Good for nothing Humans, didn't bother with desexing
& didn't care when the Kitteh went AWOL & Never came back !

As Humans spread around this Country, a little over 200 yrs ago,
so the Kittehs spread too & now, they are everywhere, Multiplying,
Even in the OUTBACK !!!

This is such a Big country, a TNR program will Never work.!
These FERALS are Quite Aggressive Nowadays & UNLIKE
the Poor Pit Bulls who keep getting blamed for being Aggressive
when they ARE NOT:
These Kittehs are WILD & CRAZY Fearless.
They Really are Aggressive, almost from Birth !!!

Over time they have grown Bigger than the Normal Domestic Size Kitteh
& they can take down the Smaller KANGAROO Varieties, to eat !!!

Don't know what the Powers that be, are doing about it.!
Probably Nothing, cos I haven't heard of anything for ages.

There go all our Small, Native Wildlife Species, eventually !!!
