He sniffed where lions have marked for years. The pile of pine needles is from lions kicking them backward as they mark. Then, he marked over the same spot before departing.
The lion who was our Tom Cat was much squatter and burlier. The last time that we saw him was in November.
After the visit by the mountain lion in late April, a couple of other predators came through, sniffed his scent mark, and then left their own two cents. First, a coyote...
And then the courageous bobcat.
I have a one minute video of these three visitors if you care to see them in action.
Our world looks completely different as of today with a foot of fresh snow on the ground.
