Colorado jogger chokes mountain lion to death after wild cat attacked him on mountain trail


"
A jogger killed a mountain lion with his bare hands after the animal attacked him on a trail in the foothills of the Rockies.
The runner heard the wild cat behind him and, as he turned, it pounced and began savaging him, pouncing at his head, and clawing and biting his face and arms.
He managed to fend it off with his forearms and then jumped on top of the animal, somehow managing to suffocate it........"

Notice there are no witnesses - We are not getting the lions side of the story because:
1. He is dead and 2. Lions can't talk.

But no one should 'rush to judgement' - How do we know who attacked who first?

Could this really be a case of animal abuse?

Aren't Mountain Lions better than a lot of people you know?

Please tell me you're just joking?
No, I'm AlienView - my cousin is 'just joking' - He no longer does any posting as he was eaten by a
rabid goat - He probably deserved it though - Knowing my cousin he was probably trying to
have sex with the goat! - And, seriously, sex with goats is a bad trip!

I think you misunderstand, the poor fellow was nearly raped by a woman twice his age. They wrote mountain lion, but they meant cougar.

Huffington Post says it's a hoax.

Elsewhere there are references to his murder by "Dadger Ben." The producer Dexter Yamunkeh appears online only in references to this tale.

The fact that the story was widely-copied does not, alas, make it true! :rolleyes:
I don't know weather to be happy or sad about this, it reminded me of that headline that was also false about the circus dwarf mortally trampolining (or however that's spelt) into the yawning hippo's mouth.

The octopus that caused a man to flip his car has been spotted.
A motorist was arrested on suspicion of drug-driving earlier this week after claiming he swerved to avoid the sea creature.
He remains in police custody accused of driving while under the influence of drugs.
Police in the South Hams arrested a man after an incident just before 5.30pm on the A381 between Salcombe and Kingsbridge.
Since the incident, the octopus in question has been spotted in a field where police found the car in a ditch.

Woman (age 40) renowned for seducing young men found dead.

The police will do an autopsy to see if the cougar really was strangled.

Woman breaks up fight between dogs before realising one is a mountain lion

Once again a Mountain Lion is in the news:

"
A woman intervened in an apparent fight between two dogs, only to discover one of the combatants was in fact a mountain lion.
The Idaho woman leapt into the action after spotting her dog facing off with another animal.
“As she pulled the two animals apart, she realised that in one hand she held a juvenile male mountain lion, about 35 pounds, and not another dog as she expected,” said the Idaho department of fish and game in a statement.
The woman called for her husband to grab a gun from inside their house in Mackay, Custer County.
“Her husband responded and quickly dispatched the mountain lion as she held on to it,” added the IDFG.
The couple called local authorities and an officer from the department arrived to collect the carcass of the cougar.
It will be tested at a wildlife forensic laboratory “to determine if disease may have played a part in the lion’s behaviour”, the IDFG said.
The woman and her dog both suffered scratches from the mountain lion but were “doing fine”,” the department added........."
See whole story here:

And again we see clear cut abuse, and in fact murder of a Mountain Lion by a Human
- And you wonder why those hypothetical aliens spotted in those very real UFO vehicles refuse
to make direct contact with Humans - a species that kills animals that were minding their own
business.

- And as far as the mountain lion dog fight - I bet the dog started it.

She could have easily strangled it instead.

Now to show evidence of my hypothesis that the dog started the fight I want you watch this video where
we see a perfectly peaceable Mountain Lion, minding his own business, and then being set upon by two
obnoxious barking dogs who continue with deliberate harassment of the poor lion - And you will notice
how the lion showed restraint and did not attack, at least at first, when in fact he could have easily
beaten the dogs!

Dogs VS Mountain Lion!

The cat didn't seem too bothered & the dogs didn't do much other than circle & bark. The German Shepherd wasn't too keen to get close. They'd probably need another 6 dogs before doing anything but in typical dog fashion were happy to chase after it when it runs off & would probably claim this as a victory in chasing it off their patch.

THIS THREE-CONTINENT ANT MEGA-COLONY WILL CONQUER EARTH SOON


THE ARGENTINE ANT PLAGUE

""
The prolific and pestilential Argentine ants were once native to South America, but we’ve unintentionally introduced them everywhere else too (all continents except Antarctica). On several of the continents, they’ve formed vast colonies. The so-called ‘California Large’ reportedly stretches almost 560 miles along California’s coast. Over in Europe, meanwhile, there’s one that covers 3,700 miles along the Mediterranean coastline!

If you’re getting antsy just thinking about the sheer size of these groupings, remember that they were once thought to be isolated. Now we know there’s a connection between these super-colonies. What we’re actually looking at is (possibly) one super super colony!........"

COME ON OVER, MEET THE FAMILY

""
Ants from the different super-colonies were matched up against each other, to determine their levels of aggression to each other. It was found that ants from the smaller super-colonies would be as aggressive to one other as always, but those from the main ones (the Californian, larger European and larger Japanese colonies) would not. On the contrary, they engaged in friendly antenna-rubbing ant behavior.

The fact that these little creatures—that had been were separated by thousands of miles—were so friendly is intriguing. The report concludes, “The most plausible explanation is that ants from these three super-colonies are indeed family, and are all genetically related, say the researchers. When they come into contact, they recognize each other by the chemical composition of their cuticles.”

What we’re looking at, in short, isn’t so much a global population as a global community..........."

I say give them a chance - Certainly could not do more harm to the Earth than Humans, right?

Masters of construction and building and eco-friendly - What more can you ask?

So stop worrying about ET and Alien invasions - With the ants on our side we will triumph!
