    I live in SW PA, and I saw a track of a mountain lion along the creek below my house. Though like you said if you say anything to the game commission, they'll laugh at you, but I know for a fact that they are around, we have bobcats, coyotes and these wolf/coyote hybrids that the game commission turned out to control the deer population, but they won't admit it.
    Mountain lions/cougars are skittish cats, loud noises especially dogs will keep them away, coyotes will stay away if there is more than 1 dog, bobcats don't usually bother much of the farm animals. My major concern is black bear, have you considered that? If my horses smell a bear, they will not, I mean absolutely will not cross where it had been, they will freeze and shake. A close friend of mine had one of her horses attacked by a black bear, the horse lived, and the hunt is still on for the bear. Black bears are a big issue around where i'm at.
    Hope this helps some!

    Hadn't thought of bears - but that would be a possibility with all the other animals around. Whatever it was he didn't like it. I'm not a tracker or anything so going scouting probably wouldn't help any.

    It's all good Cobra, I know bears are common all over the country. Just be careful, especially around June/July that's their breeding season, and they're all really aggressive at that time of year. I accidentally rode up on one on my road, and I hurried up and turned the horse around and headed for home! Thank goodness it didn't come after us.
