Right in your backyard (well, front yard technically) but just a little too close to your home.
Mountain lions or cougars are stealthy killers.
Widely known for their masterful hunting skills, they strike hard and fast every time, heading straight for the kill zone and striking the prey’s neck.
They’re an elusive animal in many areas, and while they’re relatively common in the western half of the United States, people rarely see them.
North America’s largest cat, she weighs about 175 pounds…not exactly a kitten I’d want on my porch.
As such, they can often be found where deer or other members of the deer family are plentiful. They love deer, they can kill one and keep it for a week and a half before having to hunt again.
This lion was spotted in a San Francisco area neighborhood and in the footage the dog can be heard barking as the homeowner turns on the yard lights to reveal the cougar’s fresh prey, a big old deer.
The deer appears to be almost the same body size as the cat, but the cat pulls it away with ease. Light as a feather…
According to the homeowner, the deer came out onto the porch to munch on some rose bushes:
“The deer had wandered onto the porch to eat some roses but was thrown against a metal railing by its attacker. The mountain lion then quickly ended the life of its prey by breaking its neck and dragging the carcass away.”
Off you go the mountain lion… until his next hunt.
