    Cougar attack

    Not sure where it happened, think I saw it on HLN. Dog, looked like yellow lab, intervened between 11 yr old boy and cougar. Dog's rightly called a hero and survived but only because someone shot the cat as he chomped down on dog's head. Details anyone?!?!?

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    Hmmm, I was expecting a story about a sexually aggressive middle-aged woman...

    First I've heard of this story, thanks for posting it. Hope the doggie pulls through quickly, and he's definitely a hero. If I was his owner, he'd be eating steak for a LONG time.

    No, I really don't think you want this type of "cougar" to attack you. Unless of course you have a death wish.

    Seriously, now, that's the one thing I worry about. Our farm is in Western W.Va., one of the two "rural" counties of W.Va. according to the Governor's office. Very hilly, forested land. Wolves, coyotes, black bears, ok. But a cougar's sneaky and will jump on your back from behind and crunch your skull before you know he's there. I've got a S&W model 29 "mountain gun" in a cross-draw holster so as to be able to shoot under my left arm into such a beast. But I'm not sure how effective I'd be with large canines sticking into my neck. And there's no EMS out there, and the nearest neighbors are miles away.

    Those of us who live in cities and suburbs often lose track of the fact that there exist dangerous wildlife often fairly close outside the city limits.

    I am fairly sure I saw a bobcat one time in an area on the east coat where there had been some attacks; it might have been a large feral cat, but I don't think so-- too big.

    I know someone who has a mountain lion poking around their farmland and neighbors cattle ranch, not all that far from civilization and actually just 10 miles from a major interstate hwy.

    I saw this on the news. At the end they asked the boy how he was going to reward his dog. He answered they had already bought steak.

    The dog saved the boy and the deputy saved the dog (luckily he was only a 1/2 block away).

    No doubt, considering this happened in Canada. I don't think our northern friends are allowed to have a handgun in the home. Are they allowed a rifle or shotgun?

    I like dogs, but do no own one as they are too much trouble. However, in your situation I would own at least one and maybe two large enough to help in a situation where I might be attacked by a lion or whoever.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    Yes, they're allowed all three, pistol, rifle, and shotgun. The only thing I know of off the top of my head is that a pistol barrel must be so long, and cannot be under that length (4 inches I think, I welcome correction if I'm wrong) and that there's a 10 round limit on magazines.

    Any Canadian members around who can clarify the law?
