We have a great running/walking trail that goes right behind our place. I use it for my runs. We use it to take the dogs down to the bark park.
Well the mountain lions have been visiting town again. This past week a mountain lion attacked a goat at veterinarians house (this is a cool story--a donkey actually fought off the lion). A couple of other folks I know have had sightings while they run.
Just one more reason to carry!
