The increase in the number of big cats and the expansion back into areas
where these animals haven't been seen in a hundred years isn't something a
everyone is thrilled about. Farmers and ranchers are rightly concerned about
their stock and and it's affects on there livelihood. There have been and will
be some attacks on domesticated animals. These are wild animals looking for
food to survive. However, I think most will find adequate numbers of deer that
they will not not have to resort to preying on domestic animals. Especially if
we do our part by deterring where possible.
Live stock are not the only domestic animals falling victim to mountains.
There seems to be an increase in pet incidents. Mostly cats and dogs. Although
rare, there have also been humans
killed by mountain lions.
