I got in kind of late on your post about the mule killing the mountain lion, but I would love to have pictures of it if you still have them. I took in a lion 2 days ago that weighs approx. 185, and the guy that killed it brought a video of him shooting it with his bow. The cat came flying out of the tree trying to mall the shooter and ripped the jeans off of his leg, but didn't get any skin, then ran about 20 yards and died. This all took place in about 7 or 8 seconds. Barry was black and blue for a while. He would enjoy seeing these pictures as would my 88-year-old great uncle in Ky who did the majority of his farming over the years with mules and still rides his horses EVERY day. All 3 of them. Thanks.

I did send the site address to snopes, the photo appears to be real, note different positons of the cat.

Some say its retouched with all the colors and BS.

Since snopes does have the info, and they cannot disprove it, they posted a disclaimer.

I saw the photos on the snopes website
