2. Amazing. Do these cats usually travel in packs? I never heard of that before. Maybe

a momma and offspring? Wild.

9. Great tech tip. How about pulling out your full-frame camera at the same time?

I'm quite impressed at how the photographer was able to keep his "device" steady and keep his comments very quiet. I won't criticize anyone who can capture this type of footage.

10. Mountain lions are gorgeous.

All cats, big and small, are a combination of strength and beauty. Poetry in motion.

13. We lived on the southern face of a peak in the Cascades

And would see the big cats from time to time, but never in a group.

Thing is, by the time you see them, they've been watching you for the last 20 minutes.

Beautiful video. Kudos to the steady hand that kept that shot even.

14. Lived in an urban canyon in SoCal...

 

...during a Drought, and after some brush fires robbed them of prey, they all started down into suburbia, and on to a college campus looking for food and water. Trank darts, for some reason, didn't do the trick on one, only made 'em mad, and had to be put down.

Keep building farther out into the brush, and reap the consequences.



Kudos to the photog...must have brass ones, as these things can really make a mess of you.
