Hi Mick

Yes you already said hi!  I joined up about a month ago, I am in Cairns QLD.  I haven't been on for a while, was away over Xmas and have been busy at work.  Take care, watch out for those cats.

"residents can get special permits to shoot a lion if it is perceived as a danger to people"

You need a permit for this?  So, would the woman have been arrested if she would have shot the cat?

No mystery here.  The place is lousy with mountain lions or cougars, unless of course your looking for them.  In the spring, it is not unusual for someone in West Valley to find one in their garage overnight.  We were looking at a home on the outskirts of Price, Utah, and were stuck inside when one decided to park his tail in the shade on the porch.  Another time we arrived at a freinds house under construction in Pine Meadows.  We were stuck in the truck for almost an hour waiting for the big cat to leave the unfinished basement.  It's usually the young ones out on their own that get in bad places.

So in Australia, can you shoot something that doesn't exist?  Might make a nice coat or rug!

Here in Michigan we've had proof that wolverines are around or occasionally visit at the least, even thought it is widely denied.

Those pictures might just be of a big feral housecat.  That is what a lot of the sightings around here in the states are called too. Smiley  A really really big feral housecat.  Really big and really hungry.

Sounds likely to me if all of the pictures were taken as claimed.

There was a great story on the TV a couple of weeks ago, with the best video footage to date.

Amazing shots and believe me, they aint no bleep cats.

3 different states. Thousands of miles apart.

I have come to the firm belief that these were released by Yamk soldiers in WW2, most likely in Queensland.

Recent digusting land clearing has forced them down the great dividing range, south to other states.

Its only a matter of time, months perhaps until someone has one of these captured.

Mick, thanks for the links.  I do not like any kind of cat, be it kitty cat, mountain lion, and so on and so on.  They scare the beegeesus out of me, I don't like bears either, they scare me just as badly.  I like bees  rolleyes  Have a wonderful day, great life, great health.  Cindi

Still thinking about that wax and it travelling overseas.  PM me one day. C

Another reported sighting in my State this week. A couple driving came across one of these big cats and watched it scramble up the roadside into the bush.

These sightings are being made closer to towns as time goes on. I reckon its because of the drought and lack of food.

trust me, its only a matter of time before we get one of these critters.

Here in Washington state the voters decided to pass an inititive that made it against the law to hunt mountain lions, bobcats, or bears with hounds.  (I use to do that in my younger days)  All the hounds dog owners told everybody that the cities would soon be over run by mountain lions, babcats, & bears--The public laughed and PETA & Paws won at the polls.

10 years later people are finding said 3 animals snatching their pets right out of their yards and often eating right infront of the pet owner, the bears have replaced racoons at dumpster diving, and people walking in parks are getting attacked by rouge bears & cats.   It's funny but the public still laughs when the hunters say, "I told you so."

No use for the said 3 in the county areas.  They should be up the mountains, or not at all.  I know of a few people around here that have had their small dogs (and maybe some big ones too) and cats eaten up, almost, like you said Brian, right before their very eyes.  It is in our local newspapers often.....the monsters from the woods that eat up all the city folks' prides and joys.  It is a shame.  I am sure it has so much to do also with all the wildlife's domain that is being taken away from them.  The growth and development of human habitat in our area is sad.  I thank goodness for now, we live in the ALR and they cannot subdivide our area.  But....I don't doubt that there will be a day comin' soon that we will have highrises to the east, west, north and south.  That will be a sad day.  Have a beautiful and wonderful day.  Cindi
