A couple of weeks ago a hiker in Colorado was attacked by a mountain lion they say was only 6 or 7 months old. It weighed only 40 pounds, so the man was able to kill it by choking it to death. Some house cats get to 20 pounds, so it was a small panther. But he is lucky that even a kitten lion, on its back, didn’t rip a pretty good hole in him with its back claws. I kind of wonder if it wasn’t sick or injured.
