Might want to keep the cameras out, your first thought of a small cat could be correct, thanks for sharing

Now you have some nice pics for this year's Christmas cards. Too bad you were not allowed to keep the carcass.

Thanks everybody! My dad and I will truly remember and tell this story for years to come. And I do have quite a few cameras still set out. Some are positioned for deer, the rest are for keeping track of what predators are coming and going. I do wish I got to keep the cat, probably would have turned it into a rug and enjoyed some mountain lion steaks.

I wish I could have gotten a photo of me, the cougar and the llama because her cackling was the only way I knew it came back. She was plenty spooked for one night, however. She's the true Cougar Hunter.  :chuckle:

You could likely have that story printed in an outdoor magazine. Good writing.

Nice work.  We have had a few calls out that way this summer, but it's always the next day and the hounds can't do much.  Glad you got him squared away

I was going to say this as well.  A great story is only great if you can communicate it well.  Your write up was very well done, I felt like I was reading something out of a novel.

Great job dealing with the sheep killer!

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Nice cat and good job. Lost 10 sheep in the past year to cats. Might be younger than 4. I shot a 175lb tom and according to wdfw tooth data he was 3 years old.
