Pat Adams: Mountain lion sightings
November 18, 2009
I hope Jim Haskins, of the Division of Wildlife, will read "Beast in the Garden." The book is about the mountain lion attacks in Boulder some years back. It is fine that the mountain is the lions' habitat. It is typical that the cats go unnoticed. However, it is not a good thing when they no longer run away immediately and merely sit and look at humans; this is the seed of aggression. There was an article a few weeks ago about a cyclist who was unable to frighten a cat away even though he waved his bike threateningly. I hope the DOW is thinking about relocating this cat if it keeps appearing.
