    Trees started snapping off, after bending as far as they could from the weight.

    Mule Takes on Mountain Lion

    Fwd: Fw: True meaning of "Bad Ass" - Mule Takes on  Mountain Lion - WOW!

    This may be a first...

    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.

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 4..
