HEMET, Calif. (CBS) ―
Size really doesn't matter, as a trio of Chihuahuas proved by cornering a full-grown, adult mountain lion in their owner's garage.
Ana Lee Spray of Sage, near Hemet, heard her three Chihuahuas barking in her garage and went to check out commotion. Spray was surprised to see the massive, angry cat hissing at her and her dogs and immediately took her pets inside.
Spray called 911 and officers from the Department of Fish and Game tranquilized the mountain lion. The big cat had to be tranquilized again after running from the garage.
It’s not the size of the dog in the fight...
Agreed. Most small dogs I have seen act like they have a napoleon complex....they are vicious.....
Forget the pit bulls.....I’m gonna have a couple dozen chiuahuas for guard dogs....
This strkes me as the mirror image of the house cat that cornered a bear up a tree.
Exit, stage left, even!
Yo querro, Taco Bell.
My Jack Russell’s are the same way. They fear nothing. I have a 100+ pound male Bloodhound that is scared out of his mind of them. He won’t even come in the house if he thinks one of the “boys” is lurking somewhere. I have to put the JRT’s outside to get the Bloodhound to come in.
Ya just don’t mess with Taco Bell.
We’ve been having a mountain lion problem here in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We live quite a ways from town, on about 40 acres of timbered land. We have three dogs, a Siberian Husky, a Weimeraner, and a little bitty miniature schnauser. Our back upper deck is about 14 feet above the ground. That is where we usually store our 50 lb. sacks of dog food. Last night, all three dogs alerted, growled, snarled and just went crazy at the deck doors off our bedroom. I flipped on the deck lights and looked out. There was a big cat, about six feet from tail to nose, ripping apart the big sack of dog food. It must have leaped from one of the pine trees near our deck to access it. Of course it took off right away, but I moved the sacks of dog food inside.
We built this home in 1995. Never saw a mountain lion until about three years ago. We now have weekly sightings. Our neighbors have been missing cats and small dogs.....and our deer population has dropped significantly. A couple of weeks ago, we found a dead fawn in our back “yard”. It had been gutted and partially eaten. We buried the remains.
They are really becoming a problem. I worry about our three young grandchildren who live about a half mile down the road from us. Any thing small is prey for the big cats.
I always thought chihuahuas were useless but ya can’t argue with success. :)
Thanks for the ping, I-M.
I had two at one time, interesting to say the least.
I often wondered about getting t 20-30 of them, and training them to act like a school of...dogs, pirhanna dogs, lol.
Our little dog is the guard dog in the house. I pitty anyone who takes her bark too lightly.
LOL. Our springer is the same way with our little dog (a basset/boxer mix?). The little dog is merciless when it comes to biting the springer.

Chihuahuas are so fearsome that police have been known to shoot them rather than tangle with them!
Yes, that really happened.
Snicker. I even know what that means......and we have done it.
Haa haa! That is too funny. Remember, the root word of terrier is “terror”. :)
Apparently you missed the last S...
