It always fun to see who the bed-wetters are...
There are a lot of large black bears and mountain lions around my place. The bears only become social and dangerous to tidier people (no garbage) as they overpopulate and their territories overlap (happening now). They’re becoming overly curious, but we haven’t needed to use any of the Brenneke slugs for bear, yet. The cougars tend to be very reclusive and are only rarely dangerous to those who walk in the dark without looking behind them (big, stalking cats see that). They have killed a pet or two, and some livestock once in a great while. ...only know the presence of the big cats through an occasional road sighting in headlights and very often now through seeing their tracks (no nail prints, numbers of toes,...) and other signs.
As for livestock, well, we do protect livestock when necessary. ...not very often in this remote area so far (on the Rockies). Only the elk herds are getting hit much by lions and wolves (elk hoof here and an elk hoof there, as each herd passes back and forth).
We’ll trade all of our mountain lions for those African lions. [Little ironic humor there.] African lions would be easier to keep an eye on and increase revenues from tourism. ;-)
