Mountain Lion?

Recommended Posts

My brother says he saw a cat that was about the size of my dog(70-75lbs)run right in front of his car in KC. He was driving on Raytown Road near the post office right outside of Raytown(if that helps any lol). I asked him a bunch of questions, color(tan), length(long was all I could get, it happened pretty quick). My brother thinks it was chasing something, but he didn't see what. However, he tells me that the car was about 15 feet away from this critter, so distance wasn't an issue. Also this happened in broad daylight. I thought that maybe he was mistaking this for a bobcat, but then he said that it had a long tail, plus the fact that we have seen bobcats in KC often enough to not get too excited about it. Plus the fact that my brother doesn't make up stuff, he is a pretty boring person.

I'm forcing him to call MDC and tell what he saw.

Why's that ?

Well, I would think that MDC would want to know if there is a Mountain Lion sighting. I think that it would be preferable to doing nothing. Wrench, this is right by a suburb of KC, and I would think that it would be for the good of people with small animals around the area to at least be alert of what may be in the woods. I would also want to know if there is a mountain lion in the area. I'm not forcibly making him do this, but I told him that it might be helpful to the MDC if you report this.

I understand where you're coming from I suppose, but MDC isn't going to launch a "capture and relocate" campaign, or put up flyers in the area, or do a public service message over the local radio and newspaper. So I don't get the point of sitting on hold for 20 minutes waiting to "report" it, just for them to say..."oh really, wow, well thank you for your call". :rolleyes:

Besides, if that cat finds out you narc'd on him he might come after your pomeranian or whatever. LOL

Wow Wrench, I wasn't expecting this type of response. Everything ok over there? It's not like I'm wasting your time, and it not like I'm literally forcing my brother. So I'm at a little bit of a loss here. . . Have you had a bad experience with the MDC?

Wrench has a phobia about "agencies." Just ignore him. (But he's right, they won't care...don't waste your time.)

I'm sorry man, go ahead and drop the dime on the puss if yu feel that compelled to. Of course you're not wasting my time, I was just trying to help you avoid wasting yours...or your brother his.

No "bad experiences" with MDC other than a realization of what they truly are.

I was just being my cynical self, feel free to tell me to STFU at any time.
