A couple from Montana were out riding on the range, him with his rifle and her with a camera. Their dogs always followed them, and on this particular day a mountain lion decided to stalk the dogs (you’ll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very bad decision……for the cat.
The hunter got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare off the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs. With that, the mule took off and decided he wanted a piece of that lion. That’s when all heck broke loose….for the lion.
As the lion approached the dogs the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it to the ground by the throat. The mule then got down on his knees and bit the cat all over a dozen or more times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air one last time, walked back over the couple – that were stunned in silence and stood there ready to continue his ride…..just as if nothing had happened.
Fortunately, and even though the hunter didn’t get off a shot, his wife did get photo shots of the entire event.
Never underestimate the power of family LOVE!
