What Wakes You Up In The Morning?

This morning, my wife was awakened by a mountain lion yowl.

UPDATE: I see another Boise County resident had a less pleasant encounter with one a few days ago:
A 10-year-old Boise County resident was not seriously injured in a mountain lion attack last week, Idaho Department of Fish and Game officials said Friday.
Fortunately, his father scared it off with a 9mm.  Fish & Game tracked it down and killed it.


  1. I think you need to curb your enthusiasm for her first thing in the morning.

  2. Lucky her! I've drempt for many a year to hear that sound but so far have not been so fortunate.

  3. Are mountain lions a protected species in Idaho as they are in California? We had this discussion before but I'm suffering from CRAFT disease right now (can't remember a freakin' thing).

  4. Mountain lions are not protected here. That was a California initiative--yet another reminder that democracy, for all its virtues, is not idiot-proof.
