Don’t ever say that we are missing a wild life here in vista. A couple days ago, there were reports of an actual mountain lion in Vista, only a mile or so from my house. Wow, what fun despite the reports of missing and presumably eaten small dogs. I am pleased to hear that they are adapting to our suburban life and hopefully will once again become part of the normal landscape. Probably not, there are too many people scared by them.
But here’s the news report.
It has a picture of the lion in a tree. Hard to see, so I played with snapseed. You can see something is in that tree from the second photo, but I cannot tell if it is a cougar or mountain lion. Big difference in size between the two and both used to live in this area before humans.
