A few years ago I was working on a biology project (birds) and was invited by another group of biologists to go on a mountain lion radio collar expedition. There was no guarantee we would even see a cat let alone handle one. Luck was with us that day when the hounds treed this 92lb female. It was incredible seeing (and hearing!) the hounds work. There’s a pretty crazy story that goes along with this day but it’s too much to write here! The cat was amazing to see up close and most impressive was her tail that went for ages. She went on the following spring to successfully produce kittens and I hope she is still out there doing what mountain lions do.
