Mule vs. Cat -- WOW

This was just sent to me by a friend -- I have no idea if it's true or not, but I know that donkeys will kill a wolf; this seems real to me. What a tale!

A couple from Montana were out riding on the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion a Mountain Lion decided that he wanted to stalk the dogs...(you'll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very, bad decision on the cat's part.


The guy got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs.

With that, the mule took off and decided HE wanted a piece of that lion. That's when all hell broke loose for the lion.

As the lion approached the dogs, the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it to the ground by the throat.

The mule then got down on his knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air again, walked back over to the couple (that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride as if nothing had just happened.

Fortunately, even though the hunter didn't get off a shot, his wife got off these four pictures.

I would love to have that mule around my barn, to get rid of the raccoons and rats.

Sorry to spoil the party :P

The mule's name is Berry and it belongs to 25-year old Jody Anglin from New Mexico.
Anglin says he enjoys hunting mountain lions and is usually accompanied by a cadre of hunting dogs.
In 1998 he got Berry to assist with the lion hunts.
On the first hunt, Berry was attracted to the carcass of a lion that Anglin had shot and sort of nuzzled it and nibbled at it.
With each new kill, however, Berry got more animated and couldn't wait to get to the dead lions.
The pictures in the eRumor were taken in 2002 or 2003 and show Berry toying with a lion that was already dead, not killing it.
Someone along the way created the story about the Montana couple, the stalking lion, and the fanciful descriptions of the pictures.

Well, I'm glad I didn't say for sure it was true! That first photo was the clincher for me because it really looked like the cougar was still alive, but thinking about it now, ya, I could see getting the picture at just the right moment when the carcass was in that position.

Well, unless I meet Jody and Berry, I guess I'll never know for sure. The wonder of the Internet.

When I was a kid, a pack feral dogs got in the corral wth our shetland pony and goats. The pony kept the dogs away from the goats until my Dad could get there to scare the dogs off with a rifle.
