+1 on the pointy stick.
Also saw an article a few years ago about a hiker in Cali. being eaten by a mountain lion. She had been wearing bells (no kidding ) on her shoes to scare away the mt lions. Well the shoes with bell on them were just about all the found of her.
Personally, I think we should be supporting the lions on this topic. They are helping us get rid of the bunny hugging liberals/ morons that support them that take away our rights. We should help to increase the mt lion population in Cali, NY, NJ, (all the liberal states) and reintroduce them to D.C. area to clear up the vulchers (oops I mean elected officials that are bribed/bought)
Maybe they will think that a gun isn't such a bad idea when a mt lion is gnawing on thier leg.
