Mule Kills Mountain Lion?

This e-mail with photos claims to show a mule killing a mountain that had been stalking "them". We received several variations of this e-mail during 2004.

Steven Richards of Western Mule Magazine was able to bring us the real story.

Subject: Don't mess with THIS mule!....

This is one MAD Mule!

"These pics came from a co-worker in AZ. Yes the mule killed the mountain lion. The lion had been stalking them for the better part of the morning, on the way out to a hunt. They were pretty sure it was after one of the dogs.

The cat ambushed them, and the mule pictured tossed its rider and went into attack (defense) mode, the horses scattered and shots were fired but no one was sure if they hit the cat or not.

Unfortunately, the battle was decently long, and it wasn't until it was almost over that one of the guys started snapping pics.

The mule finally stomped the cougar to death after biting and throwing it around like a rag doll.

The dogs wouldn't even come close until the mule settled down. the cat was still alive here and trying to fight back the mule stomped the cat then pinned it to the ground and bit the heck out of the dead cat several more times. the cat was pretty much dead by now then mule picked up the cat again whipped it into the air again then stomped the dead cat again for good measure!
