Mule And The Lion (S516b)
A couple from Montana
were out riding on the range, he with his rifle and she (fortunately) with
her camera. Their dogs always followed them, but on this occasion
a mountain lion decided that he wanted to stalk the dogs (you'll see the
dogs in the background watching).
As the lion approached the dogs the mule snatched him up by the tail and started whirling him around, banging its head on the ground on every pass.
He dropped him, stomped
on him and held him to the ground by the throat. The mule got down on his
knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it
was dead, whipped it into the air again, then walked back over to the couple
(that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride...as
Fortunately, even though the hunter didn't get off a shot, his wife got off these 4.
