    A couple from Montana were out riding on the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion a Mountain Lion decided that he wanted to stalk the dogs...(you'll see the dogs in the background watching). Very, very, bad decision on the cat's part.

    The guy got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs.

    With that, the mule took off and decided HE wanted a piece of that lion. That's when all hell broke loose for the lion.

    As the lion approached the dogs, the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around. Banging its head on the ground on every pass. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it
    to the ground by the throat.

    The mule then got down on his knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air again, walked back over to the couple (that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride as if nothing had just happened.
    Fortunately, even though the hunter didn't get off a shot, his wife got off these four pictures.

    Having a skeptical nature I decided to Google this and found this on Snopes. Pictures are real, story is not it appears.

    Just a quick switch to a JPG file. Does it work?

    These are pictures Matt had in his post.

    Sorry, meant to say that the pictures were real in the previous post, but the story of the mule killing the Cat are not.
    I saw a Nature show once where a wild Horse killed a colt sired by another Stallion. After killing the colt he did much the same as this animal did, pucked it up and flung it around and stomped it even more.

    The mountainlion was dead before the Mule even touched it. There are so many of these internet stories about that one really needs to check one extra time before believing it.

    My point in my previous posts. If it's posted on the Internet and seems to good to be true it probably isn't is the credo I live by.
    Just like the story of Al Franken becoming my Senator from Minnesota, but that one proved to be true:shock:

    As I understood it the person that owned the mule shot and killed it and the Mule then attacked it after it was dead.

    No worries, man. I was trying to make a funny. I can live with a post that sucks. Won't be last.

    In fact... I just might do it twice to live up to my reputation.

    It was Colonel Mustard, with a candlestick, in the kitchen.
