young cougar was looking at me
I went to get the mail today and saw something out of the corner of my eye at the edge of a field. Overfed cat, fox... I dunno. So I got my binoculars out and it was a big cat all right. It was probably about 30lbs. There was a sighting about a mile away from here of an adult female, but that was in the fall. I guess I'm surprised that they are still around.
I immediately put the chickens back in their fenced yard, and wondered if I could let my 4-year-old go outside by herself ever again. Adult female and now cubs...doesn't sound good to me.
Any cougar wisdom, advice?
