Ya' don't screw with donkeys if you have any sense, one ripped a woman's arm off a few years ago.  I think it was up by Snoqualmie.

Did you confirm it was a single lion that did the killing?  Just the killing and not feeding makes me lean towards a pair or two of juveniles.  I would be interested to hear what others think.  Especially @wacoyotehunter @bearpaw and @machias who have run hounds and seen a lot of lions.

I would look into filing a lawsuit against the  state. It's not your fault the state voted out proper management.  If more people  would do this , maybe they would figure out a way to bring some management back into the hands of hunters..

one llama is not enough to keep lions from attacking.  They generally end up getting killed.

I chased a sheep killing cat up on Eloika rd this weekend, but pulled the dogs after it started raining and we were not moving the track.  That cat (probably) got shot by a homeowner on Monday while killing chickens.  Hopefully that was the culprit.

When I read the post with the llama and several sheep and that it was a confirmed cat kill,  I immediately thought more than one cat.  But you'd have to look at the sign around the kill sites to confirm it.

I have a beagle that you could try for a bit.  It would be horrible if the cat got her.   :chuckle:


The downside of a donkey is that they can be NOISY!  The one I had was a mammoth jack and even tho I didn't have many neighbors, and they weren't that close to me......They noticed.

If I were you I'd play with some fairly "unwanted" critters, rescue types and see what happens.  That way you don't have a lot to really lose.

I have always loved the singing! Mules/donkeys have always put a smile on my face everyday, they're clowns.

It's not at all unusual for 1 lion to kill multiple sheep or goats. It's like turning a house cat loose on a family of mice, they can't stop, they will likely kill every mouse they see, same with sheep and goats and lions.

Good to know, I had not run across it so far.  Thanks!

Thanks Dale. That's what I was thinking as well. That in the excitement of things, it chased down each and every animal. I'm sure it feels like a game to the lion.

Is that more common to a younger cat honing his skills by killing like it's still a game?
