FTFA: Last week, another leashed dog was attacked by a mountain lion in L.A.'s Silver Lake neighborhood. That dog, also a Chihuahua, survived after its owner fought off the big cat.

In the mountain lion's defense, the chihuahua was probably asking for it. Those are some aggressively insane little hyper-dogs.

If you work as a server in a bar, one easy way to get good tips from cougars is to ask them for ID.

If owners are fighting off the cat I don't think he'd do well in a knew location.

Park Service will "determine the best next steps for the animal while also prioritizing the safety of the surrounding communities."
determine the "most humane options available for a plan of action for the lion and the community in which he lives."

Yeah, he's going to a farm upstate where all the old mountain lions get as much as they want to eat and play with each other all day long.

Christ, why can't they just issue a warning and safety tips to pet owners and parents of small children and leave the mountain lion alone?

I agree, but they may be worried that since he is older he may be seeking out easier prey. If he is I'll or injured and is now seeking out small, yappy dogs that could be a problem. Maybe he got tired of fast food after eating a koala and wants meals that don't run away.
