Indentifying and Protecting Wildlife Corridors

Mt. Lion, glass door, housecat

 

Well how about from the comfort of your living room?  This is a truly remarkable video of a Mountain Lion playing , or wanting, but certainly interacting with, a house cat. Lets just say this family’s children will not be playing outside unsupervised any more.

Mountain Lion/human interactions are on the increase, and the more we understand about the ecological role of these top carnivores, the better. The better for us, the Mountain Lions, the deer, and all the myriad interactions that ensue from the presence of a top carnivore, designed to cull the weak, the sick, and (ulp) the young.  Of course healthy deer populations are our best ally when we live in Mountain Lion territory, as Deer, Elk, rabbits and other small animals are what Mountain Lions have evolved to eat, not humans.
