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

    On WI private property you can kill them if feel threatened. Our legislature authorized this a few years because refused to.

      If a mountain lion is comfortable enough around people to move under my house, it would be dead. No need to waste time calling anybody. No darts, no beanbags, no tennis balls. P-22, meet OO buck.

        I feel sorry for this old boy. Time has passed him by. He lives on the mountain in Griffith Park, surrounded by Los Angeles on all sides and barricaded by freeways. He has been poisoned, hit by a car, chased by TV camera crews, tranquilized, and collared. In photos he looks haunted and very much alone, and has been this way for years. An old hunter,kind of reminds me of , well me..

          So you're saying you have been poisoned, hit by a car, chased by TV camera crews, tranquilized and radio-collared?? Hunting in California sounds exciting! Lol

              Tired old hunter is more like it. However, have had my share of misadventures, most of them not in California. Living in LA is bad enough

                My city girl wife wanted to leave the house after seeing a mouse down in our basement.

                A cougar would too much for my wife to handle. She would be on suicide watch. LOL

                  Hi...


                  Are you kidding me...the lion has been pelted with bean bags, tennis balls, etc...??

                  Was this an effort to get the lion to move out...or just to torment it (and you know what some of those TV people can be like)...!!

                    Hi...

                    A tranquilizer dart might be one 'logical' answer...but then it comes to removing the lion...and in a timely manner, too...!!
