What would you do if a mountain lion moved in under your house? Apparently this is not an abstract question according to the LA Times -Famed P-22 Mountain Lion Stuck Under House and won't come out. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-famed-p

    Something would have to be done if I believed it planned on staying. Probably call the DNR and have it darted, sedated, and removed. That's probably what they will need to do with the lion in LA.

      When our cats don't want to move we just throw them some catnip. Always does the trick. As DSM said, probably a dart if they can get eyes on it.

        I think I'd prefer a flash bang on that one. Maybe some CS.
        If a mountain lion has decided to make itself comfortable in my space, it would be comfortable snatching a small person in my yard as well. I don't want it just relocated. I want it to have an extremely bad experience.

          I believe that would be worse than a skunk under the house. I would agree with DSM, dart it and remove it. What I WOULDN'T do is pelt it with bean bags and tennis balls, and poke it with a pole, like they did. That sounds like a recipe for someone getting attacked.

              On the skunk option I'm too sure which... had not considered that choice before now. Leaving towards the lion at least if it had to be shot it would ruin my house.

                meant "leaning" not "leaving" but the skunk would make me leave.

                  OK, if the catnip got the big kitty out. Then what are you going to do with him?

                    Remember this is California not Iowa where all you practical people folks reside. If I'm not mistaken cougars can be shot on sight in Iowa.

                      Remember this California and they many times behave differently. Sorry shoka no offence to you, I'm pretty sure we know how you'd deal with a large cat under your house...

                        That is true. How dare they presume to keep a cougar out of their house. Speciesist.

                          Once all the TV crews, reporters, and camp followers left the scene, apparently, old P-22 wandered back into the mountains

                            Yeah, they are officially considered to not exist here, so they can be shot anywhere, any time. Don't ask me how the DNR rationalizes allowing something that doesn't exist to be shot...

                              The skunk option only came into my head because I just found a dead skunk in my garage this morning. I'd been wondering for the last several days why I was smelling skunk on both the vehicles parked in there, and finally today I saw it laying dead in a corner. Don't know what happened to it...
