UPDATE: Dog, Not Mountain Lion, Damages Car

There’s no doubt mountain lions pack some incredible power and jaw strength, but these photos from Eureka, Mont. are still pretty shocking.

According to an e-mail I received, this car was attacked by a mountain lion during the night. The owners think their house cat was underneath the car or in the motor trying to hide from the cougar.

UPDATE: The tracks on the windshield have been identified as dog tracks, not mountain lion tracks. The owners of the car suspected mountain lions, but local authorities confirmed the damage was in fact done by one or more dogs.

If you have some mountain lions in your area that you’d like to get rid of, make sure to read Jack Spencer Jr.’s article “Lion Pride” in the Winter 2010 issue of Predator Hunting Magazine.
