Come and wonder with me

This is unbelievable!  

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.
The hunter 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 (who 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 the pictures.

Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby


  1. Is this for real?? LOL
    I hope you are having a wonderful day!

    1. I think it may well be Beth, as I don't think it could be staged, but that mule isn't exactly a little donkey.
      A wet day here but I was lucky in getting dry walks with the dogs. Keep well you XX

  2. Wow, what an amazing tale! Well done to the mule, but shame the lion had to die, that is nature's way I know!! Love to you all xxx

    1. That's how I feel poppy, Mother nature can be cruel but I suppose she knows best and has to look after ALL her babies. {{{hugs}}} back to you.

  3. Truly amazing tale. I do know that a horse would have bolted, and a large Donkey would have fought off the Cat, but that Mule is a real killer.

    1. Hi Horst, yes, Mules aren't as dumb as they're portrayed to be, they've got guts.

  4. Wow what a tale Arelene , I didn't know Mules where quite up to this. As Horst says a horse would have bolted. Amazing ...
    Awful day here chilly and raining. yak!!
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx

  5. Wow! The story and the pictures leave me speechless, and that's saying something.

  6. Amazing isn't it. you made me smile Terry, reminds me of me. Cold and wet all day to-day here. Thanks for calling XX

  7. Never know what I'm going to find next...or that I've been missing lol on your blog! Awesome tale and what a gutsy mule!

    sorry I'm so long getting over here, I need to catch up with all the good people over here but Ive popped over you yours first cos I know I'll already have missed a billion posts! Laptop's been away for two weeks only got it back last night. Turned out had been done ab 2 weeks ago but they couldn't call me as they didn't change my phone no despite two visits to make sure they had! Welleeee it's midnight now so guess I will have to return tomorrow :)

  8. Nice to see yo back here wolfie, and as you say you just never know what you're going to find, though i must admit it's second hand, but I try to find interesting things for you.
    I hope you're laptop is now back in full working order, so you will have no excuses not to come visiting. XX

  9. It is indeed! Turned out it was ready to collect the day after I took it in (2wks earlier) but they didn't change my phone no even tho I gave it to them 2s. So they couldn't contact me! I thought it must be like the phone shop - 10 to 14 days so didn't contact them either!!

  10. Well gleaning thru some of your older blogs I saw this one and couldn't believe it. Wow I know mules can be onory, but this guy is a down right killer. Thanks for sharing this story. I had to pass the link onto a friend I know she will enjoy it. Well life has taken a hold of me again so haven't been blogging or visiting much. But sure enjoy peaking in once in while to see how you are doing. Hugs Carrie
