Get a MULE. http://www.phase.com/conklink/the_mule_and_the_montian_lion We were just looking at this and all the pictures . Judge for your self. As a DONKEY owner I know for a fact that DONKEYS make good watch animals. Here is another site about Mules and Mt LIONS. http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_mule_mountain_lion.htm have not had a chance to look at this last site but sure it is more about Mules, Donkeys and LIONS. There was some people not long ago with a LION around their place, maybe someone can give this info: to them, or they might just see this. I will repeat the sites http://www.phase.com/conklink/the_mule_and_the_mountain_lion http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/bl_mule_mountain_lion.htm you may contact me by private mail for the correct site as this is not working as you can see ???
