My 8 yr old appaloosa stud was taken from me 2 nights ago by a Mountain Lion. Yes, a Mountian Lion aka Puma aka Cougar. I just want everyone who has horses or any other livestock in a rural area that the threat from Mountain Lions is very real. He is the second horses I've had taken from me by a Mountain Lion in the last 4 years. I can tell you now that your local conservation department will deny the presence of them til they're blue in the face, but the facts are that they're numbers are on the rise and conservation probably won't do anything until a human is attacked and or killed.
I guess what I'm trying to say is hold every day your have with your horse dear cause you never know when it'll bethe last.
