Wild cougars and getting close
In reply to John Byrne, Apr 14, 2013

Hi John,

Thanks for sharing that story. I would have been very afraid, even if the zoo keeper was not. Wild animals are always wild. Big cats are carnivores. What I've read about wild cougar encounters is you always make eye contact and never look or turn away from them. It's a sign of flight and can trigger an attack, if they are ever going to.

I will look for the history of Mildura and it's California connection.
