LIving on a ranch is always interesting! This morning, Rancher Ed stopped by with his rifle. A mountain lion was spotted running towards my hill chasing a deer and spooking the cows just a few minutes before. So Ed searched my property and came up empty.
Ed went to search elsewhere on the ranch in an attempt to find the lion. He said to call if Rex the Wonderhound alerts us. Rex had been barking and acting weird earlier… now I know why.
I asked him if the lion would go after my kitties or my dog. He said they typically were after bigger game- sheep, goats, calves. Hmmmmm…. I’m still reminded of the time one of my son’s classmates lost his mother to a rare mountain lion attack. She was jogging in a remote area and was killed back in the 1990’s. Very tragic. Guess I won’t be walking alone on the ranch for the foreseeable future. I think I’ll put Rancher Ed’s phone number on speed dial.
And how is YOUR day?
