When you live in the west, you know that life can change literally overnight. People in a Utah community learned this recently as they woke up to learn their neighborhood had been taken over by a very large visitor.
Everyone has their own way of finding some peace and quiet. For you, it might be a mellow walk down on the Platte River Trails. For me, it's watching a Montana driver get stopped dead in their tracks by hundreds of elk.
When you go hunting, you hope you'll run into a big buck. You also understand that seeing a mountain lion is a possibility. It's not common though to see both animals in a mortal battle which is what some Colorado hunters witnessed recently.
