Here Kitty Kitty

Yes. There are mountain lions in the Black Hills.

I say this straight away because there have been plenty of arguments about that over the years and only vague ideas as to exactly how many there are around here. There is a hunting season and there are plenty of tagged cats, including several that cross our property now and then.

Like this morning.

This morning, I got a rather excited page (we have home-connecting intercoms... yeah) from my next door neighbors. Turns out the M-Man was enjoying his breakfast when he looked out the window and saw a big guy walking by. Those prints are roughly the size of my palm (actually maybe a little bigger) and about sixty feet from the house, headed up the road.

Never a dull moment.
