Here's a Cat Tale about a Mule with an Attitude!!

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). Very, very, bad decision on the cat's part.The guy got off the mule with his rifle and decided to shoot in the air to scare away the lion, but before he could get off a shot the lion charged in and decided he wanted a piece of those dogs. With that, the mule took off and decided HE wanted a piece of that lion. That's when all hell broke loose for the lion. 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. Then he dropped it, stomped on it and held it to the ground by the throat. The mule then got down on his knees and bit the thing all over a couple of dozen times to make sure it was dead, then whipped it into the air again, walked back over to the couple (that were stunned in silence) and stood there ready to continue his ride as if nothing had just happened. Fortunately, even though the hunter didn't get off a shot, his wife got these four photos.

Wow! I would have never thought a mule would do that. I would have figured it running in fear. Amazing story.

This is so amazing! I hope it's not a joke. I've heard similar stories of pets protecting their humans from other animal intervention, but this one surprises me. I would have thought the mule would have been afraid of the lion.

First you bring us the "cutest ass" ever, and now we have a "bad ass" kicking p#ssy around like a rag doll.

What will you bring us next?? LOL!
