    This hunter got off the mule with his rifle and decided to
    shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could
    fire his rifle the lion charged at his dogs. Guess the Mule took
    over from there.

    Mules protect against predators. Don't mess with a mule.

    Ya know, I apologized for my past behaviour when you first showed up with the dead wolf pic. But I've noticed you have this dead animal fetish. Does it get you all excited or something?

    btw....the mule was awesome for protecting the dogs. Too bad the cat didn't get the hunter first, though.

    The Mule that Killed the Mountain Lion-Fiction!

    Summary of the eRumor:

    A series of pictures of a saddled mule making sport of a mountain lion.

    The accompanying story says the lion was stalking the hunting dogs of a Montana couple while they were out on the range.

    The man was going to fire a warning shot to scare the lion but before he could do it, his mule grabbed the lion and killed it by whirling it around and banging the lions head on the ground.

    Then the mule put down the dead lion and acted as though nothing had happened.

    The Truth:

    These pictures and the story about the lion-killing-mule circulated for quite a while on the Internet before Steven Richards got the real story and published it in Western Mule Magazine.

    The mule's name is Berry and it belongs to 25-year old Jody Anglin from New Mexico.

    Anglin says he enjoys hunting mountain lions and is usually accompanied by a cadre of hunting dogs.

    In 1998 he got Berry to assist with the lion hunts.

    On the first hunt, Berry was attracted to the carcass of a lion that Anglin had shot and sort of nuzzled it and nibbled at it.

    With each new kill, however, Berry got more animated and couldn't wait to get to the dead lions.

    The pictures in the eRumor were taken in 2002 or 2003 and show Berry toying with a lion that was already dead, not killing it.

    Someone along the way created the story about the Montana couple, the stalking lion, and the fanciful descriptions of the pictures.

    Now a wolf pack would definitely get the job done... if they aren't snuffed out by a bunch of redneck psychos first.

    Actually, the hunter got the cat first in that picture.

    I understand why you were upset about the wolf photo and I didn’t mean to offend anyone by that. I don’t have a “Dead Animal fetish by any means. However it’s predators like these that kill livestock. This certainly doesn’t excite me in the way intended to mean that.

    I don’t hold it against anyone for not understanding, but it’s predators like these that kill livestock and when that’s your livelihood it tends to touch a nerve. Not a fetish nerve. If I need to get excited, I can fulfill that desire “FETISH” elsewhere, with no problem!
