Here is a kitty lion hunting in my yard picked up with my new camera under test. Hope he got the rabbit he was hunting. Tomorrow the camera goes out into the real world.

To All,

We San Antonio folks have at least ONE large & well-nourished male cougar who spends a goodly part of his time in downtown, as he has been repeatedly been SEEN & photographed repeatedly on surveillance cameras at banks/business premises.

When I went to TX Master Naturalist class in 2017, a Game Warden related to our class that he was called by a downtown bank about the cat & he admitted that he said to the bank employee, "I think what people are seeing is just a stray dog." - He then said, "I was invited to come & see the videos" & then the GW said to the baker, "That's NO stray dog. That it a large male cougar of at least 125 pounds & he looks very well nourished."
When one of our classmates asked what the cat was living upon, he was told, "Cats, dogs, urban deer & other animals." & "There is no shortage of things to feed upon in Bexar County."

yours, satx

My house backs up to a green belt and (in 13 years) we've had a bob cat resting in our back yard, several coyotes walking down the street and 1 cougar about 50 yards from me. I'm in Garland about a 1/2 mile from Rowlett. On nice days, wife and I walk the tree line and never worried about the coyotes but when the cougar was spotted, there has been no walking unarmed.
The cougar had come out of the trees and was stalking my neighbors grandson and was about 20 yards from him when Tim came out of his house armed. The cougar just looked at him, turned around and disappeared back into the trees. This was about 3 months ago.
My house is located between 66 and Miller about 1/2 mile from Rowlett city limits

popgarland,

As dangerous as cougars, jaguars, feral hogs, coyotes, coy-dogs, other 4-footed predators & venomous snakes may be to your family, I go about my daily life ARMED because of the VICIOUS/AMORAL 2-footed PREDATORS that are all too commonplace in "modern America"..
(CRIMINAL/HUMAN PREDATORS are FAR more dangerous to the average person than ANY other creature is.)

yours, satx
