Just recently, the sightings have become slightly more frequent. Here was one of the few from the summer. I believe that this lion was around last fall - with two ear tags but no GPS collar. I suspected that he was part of a study of mountain lions but had somehow removed his collar.
The really nice thing, in my opinion, is that all the mountain lions that appeared in front of my trail cams were naked - they were not wearing radio collars!
I made a video of all my trail cam videos and photos of lions since the summer. You'll see a funny clip when a lion licked his chops while looking toward the camera. You'll also see a lion with an odd lump on his/her abdomen. I don't know what that is.
Enjoy the video, either here or at Youtube.
Thanks to all of you for the well wishes about the fire. The firefighters contained it. However, the wind is howling again today so we are all on high alert for smoke or flames in our area.
