Mountain Lion

While on the way back from an extended bike ride up to dinosaur ridge, my wife and I were shouted a warning from a man in a minivan parked on the opposite side to Rooney Road. “Mountain Lion!”, he shouted, pointing to a tree we were just about to pass. We stopped and crossed over to the opposite side of the road. I stayed just long enough to snap this near useless picture from my phone camera:

My picture is only good for context, to show how close the tree is to the road and how close we would have rode by this magnificent cat. Fortunately, someone else got a better picture and posted it on the 9News Facebook page:
