Mule and mountain lion
[Return to Topics]

Bill b va asked me to post this story.. I am amazed!:
These pics came from a guy in AZ. Yes, the mule killed the mountain lion. The lion had been stalking them for the better part of the morning, on the way out to a hunt. They were pretty sure it was after one of the dogs. The cat ambushed them, and the mule pictured tossed its rider and went into attack (defense) mode, the horses scattered and shots were fired but no one was sure if they hit the cat or not. Unfortunately, it wasn't until it was almost over that one of the guys started snapping pics. The mule finally stomped the cougar to death after biting and throwing it around like a rag doll. The dogs wouldn't even come close until the mule settled down.

The cat was still alive here and trying to fight back.

The mule stomped the cat then pinned it to the ground and bit the heck out of the dead cat several more times

The cat was pretty much dead by now then mule picked up the cat again whipped it into the air again then stomped the dead cat again for good measure!

Note the dog audience.... Gives new meaning to the phrase "BAD A$$"....

Must have been a young cat. An experienced cat wouldn't have ambushed a party like that unless it was sick or starving. I feel bad for the cat. They are beautiful animals.

I certainly do not feel for the cat. I would hope that my Mule would help protect me and my friends if anything like this ever happened. ONE FOR THE MULES! YEE HAW!!!

Now that you know how tough the mules are, just remember who trained them. The Mountain Men, oh course and the mean as snake "Hard Rock Miners" and remember have a great day, as the mules are out there and they will protect you. Forrest from Arizona.

nice pictures , i had to laugh , thats what my two horses do here all the time only with coyotes, don,t know what they would do with a cat, but i have seen them run bears, moose, elk, even a badger, and they are always stomping these coyotes, always good for a laugh though.

While I was stationed in Germany during 1970, I met a gentleman who had been a POW in Missouri during WWII. He told me the most amazing thing about the US to him was the Mule. He had been a farmer before the war and had used horses, but he was in awe of the mule.
They really are quite an animal.
