I'd like to say that our mountain lion miseries are overwith, but unfortunately, they are not. The mountain lion that has been hanging around our area has continued to elude wildlife officials and remains in hiding. We only see him at night, just as it gets dark. He really doesn't do anything: he is just hungry and on the search for food to eat.
We used to put food out, but concerned neighbors have told us not to: otherwise, he'd never leave, and there'd be the distinct possibility of the creature attacking one of us or our dog, "Frisky" (God forbid!). So we don't even bother.
I have already alerted wildlife officials about "Catzilla" (as my wife and I have named our mountain lion), but so far, he has remained in hiding most of the time. I hope that they don't think that I am a pest, but something has got to be done. As long as "Catzilla" is around, we aren't safe; there's no telling what the creature might do ....
I have heard stories about mountain lions attacking people or animals; mountain lions are extremely dangerous if you get on their bad side, and I'm sorry, but I am not taking any crazy chances! I know better than that!
"Catzilla" is a beautiful creature and all, but he's wild, and I'm not to tangle with wild animals: they might carry diseeases or eat me (or worse). I can remember my mother always telling us kids to stay away from wild animals as they can get dangerous when you least expect it. I've also heard that one should keep small children or pets inside when wild animals like wolves, bears, coyotes, and whatnot are spotted in the area; otherwise, you'd be missing some family members, and that would not be a very good thing!
So far, my family has been safe, but as long as "Catzilla" is out to play, we have to be vigilent and take the necessary precautions to remain safe (and preferably out of "Catzilla's" stomach).
