Cougar Attacks Horse in BC

by Hidden Trails 01/25/2011

Here on the south coast of Canada our suburban farming communities have recently been prey to a wild animal: a cougar roaming the area of Maple Ridge has recently killed seven farm animals in the last ten days. Its most recent victim was a horse. Local authorities are saying that the animal is “very unpredictable and is a genuine cause for concern”.

We all know that wild animals enter residential neighbourhoods due to encroaching development or a lack of natural resources but, despite the unfairness of the situation, no one wants to lose their beloved animals to the cause. However, not all horses take the presence of wild cats lying down. There have been reports of horses successfully defending themselves and defeating mountain lions – just going to show that no matter how well trained your horse is, there remain innate animal instincts lying beneath the surface!

Good post. I study something more challenging on totally different blogs everyday. It is going to always be stimulating to learn content material from different writers and observe a little something from their store. I’d favor to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
