Sounds crazy and people may not believe me, which is their problem. I saw the cat. I really enjoy running there, I do with run with someone. But I plan on bringing my knife next time.
I do beleive that there very well may be a mountain lion in this area but......what is the point in bringing a knife? I hope that you were just joking and don't believe in any way that a knife would proetect you if a mountain lion attacked. Even if you had the knife at the ready and the mountain lion yelled out from 50' away that he was fixing to attack you, you wouldn't stand a chance of defending yourself. Don't want you to get a false sense of security and let your guard down.

Well, look it up. Actually there have been several reports of persons fighting off a lion with rocks, sticks, yelling and hitting, maybe adding a few prayers. I wouldn't want to do it, but carrying a knife is better than no knife. There's a video on utube of a cat trying his best to get away from a guy chasing him out of his garage. We have lots of sitings really rare deaths from mountain lions. National Geographic says our lions are much less aggressive than N.M. Cats........" what is the point in bringing a knife? I hope that you were just joking and don't believe in any way that a knife would proetect you if a mountain lion attacked. "

I think what yall are seeing is a bobcat. Think about it. They are still arround. Why would they all of a sudden appear here in collin county. Never any talk of seeing one in other nearby counties. I think people that know nothing about wildlife and the outdoors are soon to call it what people mention it could be. RUMORS
Oh no no. Believe me that we see the occasional mountain lion. I know a bobcat and I know a large, sleek, muscular, apex feline. Bobcats are big but these cougars we've seen in CC are huge.

My sister called me from McKinney, TX yesterday to tell me she found a black cougar weighing around 90-100 lbs in her driveway getting ready to attack her dog. She yelled at it and scared it off. I told her time to go to the range and get some target practice in. This is nothing to joke about. Mountain lions have been known to take small children in the past as well as cows and sheep, If the deer populations are down and they are hungry enough they'll kill anything. They need to eat ten lbs of meat a day to survive.

Here's the main thing. In the day of the modern cell phone, I'd say 99% of you people posting have a phone that has a camera on it. How come there is not one single damn pic of a mt. lion in the dfw and surrounding area. That's because they are not mt. lion. I find it really hard to believe that everyone on here somehow didn't take a pic with their cell phone. Find proof that the texas parks and wildlife have dealt with mt. lions in the dfw area. You can't and wont. That's because there are not mt. lion in this area. Find one pic of a mt.lion in this area. You wont.
You can find plenty of pics of pigs, bobcats, snakes, even alligators, but not one of a mt. lion in the DFW area.
Not all bobcats are spotted or have short short tails. I've seen some pretty tall ones with longer tails at cedar hill state park. To paranoid people they might look like a mt. lion but they most certainly arent.
100's of post about freaking mt. lions and not one cell phone pic of one. I can BS
Sorry, but I wasn't thinking about a picture, I was thinking about how to save my life. I was chasing a lil bunny last night in Frisco around my house when a mt. lion was also chasing him. Lion then saw me, jumped onto neighbors grill/table(to be discarded), and swiftly jumped into their backyard. I clearly remember the long tail following behind the descending cat. I have seen a bobcat, some coyotes, and now the mt. lion. Next time, I will take a picture so you can stop trolling,

I live in west Fort Worth near 1187, and have seen some big ass bobcats, never seen a mountain lion however I have seen some tracks. I work in the tv industry and meet several cus who have said they have seen and a never no pic. Last week doing a install off fm 1886 and had a cus who brought up the mt lion and has deer all over his neighborhood
One nite woke up to a noise and seen something in his tree after going out he saw a mt lion take on and left a doe hanging in his tree tore apart. Showed pictures of the deer. Was speaking on a neighbor hood forum and a blk a way a man posted a pic a mt lion carrying a fully grown retriever in his mouth like nothing. I saw the pic my self and how I new it was true was the back ground was my cus house
