Wow that is incredible! Last early fall I was down around Sumpter Oregon and had a good look at 3 of those little kittys. The area has a few ranchers that have some pretty large herds of sheep. One rancher that I spoke with said he has takin at least one large cat per month.
They have been reaking havoc on his lambs!
The three I saw were problably 2-3 miles from the nearest herd. The biggest of the three had to weight 150 lbs plus, and all I had with my was my 20ga Ithaca, hunting the high country chukars early in the morning.
The next day I carried my STW and had my wife carry the 20ga. hehe
