A mountain lion has been prowling the streets of
Green Valley Lake the last few weeks
There's a story going around town that someone actually saw a mountain
lion kill a coyote and singlehandedly haul it up a tree, where he proceeded
to tear the animal apart limb from limb and eat him for dinner. Hmmmm.
In my opinion, a GVL.snopes.com check of this one would come up
"unsubstantiated." But the rumor is out there.
We've also heard about another attack --
this one resulted in the fatality of a small dog.
"Gooooooooood kitty. Sweet little, goooooood little kitty..."
The risk of a human being killed or attacked is pretty small.
We're certainly not going to stop going for walks or hikes
around our beautiful mountain town.
Our friend Dennis had this wood carving of a majestic cougar commissioned
and placed it in the front yard of his Green Valley Lake home. The artist says
that this is "life sized." Yikes. Anyway, Dennis has named his new cougar
statue "Demi Moore." Cute. :-}
Anyway, mountain lions aside, there are certain inherent risks
to living in a place as remote as Green Valley Lake.
This humorous sign adorns the home of a Green Valley Lake Cabin.
But never fear -- black bears, while they are certainly around,
rarely attack or eat humans. As for the second part, I honestly have no idea if
humans taste like chicken...and I hope I never have to find out.
