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

    Hi...

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

    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)...!!

    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

An old hunter,kind of reminds me of , well me..
    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

    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

    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.

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

    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...

    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...

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

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

    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...

    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.
