Cougar in Junction, Texas

This cougar was shot just across the fence between Juction & London Texas where they enjoy 400 acres leased on the Red Creek Nature Ranch. These Cougars live about 10 to 11 years in the wild and will prey on white tailed deer and mule deer. They also like to prey on Javelina, Pronghorn Antelope, Feral Hogs, Big Horned Sheep, Raccoons, Coyotes, Porcupine, Possums, Rabbits and other animals.

Mountain lion attacks on people are few and fare between with only 4 attacks since 1980. Texas Parks and Wildlife has a pamphlet for more information.
