Nature is Going to be Nature

Whether the tree huggers get it or not.

GPS Reveals Big Cat Spent 9 Hours Watching Downtown Mountain View Pedestrians


MOUNTAIN VIEW (KPIX 5) – A massive mountain lion cornered at an apartment complex in Mountain View on May 6th reveals a long, winding journey around the residential South Bay, according to just-released tracking device data.

The cat, known by researchers as 46m, wandered out of the Santa Cruz Mountains and went trapseing aroung Egan Junior High in Los Altos before checking in on countless backyards. He then swung by Target on Showers Dr. before finally ending up at the corner of California and Rengstorff Avenues in Mountain View.

The GPS device, placed on the cat by the group Santa Cruz Pumas, recorded the mountain lion hanging out under a bush for 9.5 hours, watching people, cars and bikes pass by.

Why can't the tree huggers accept the fact that there was a reason people hunted the large predators down to such small numbers they didn't pose a threat to humans?
