 One bad donkey

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.

The hunter 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 off these four pictures.

No, the story and pics were emailed to me by my brother. I'm not sure where he got them.

 One bad donkey

A donkey is what's known as an F1 hybrid.

That is not to say they are related to race cars. Laughing out loud

The term means "filial 1" or first generation result of breeding 2 different parental types together. A mule is the result of a male donkey bred to a female horse.

A donkey is very well known as a guardian animal, you only need one in amongst a herd of other (even larger) animals to stop most predators dead in their tracks, usually literally so.

This is a perfect example of such behaviour.

I have neighbours, a really sweet old Scottish couple, who keep a small herd of sheep and have a donkey named Jack (what else would you call him?) who's job it is to protect the sheep. In the middle of the field is a small man-made (by me) knoll that resulted from the left-over dirt from digging a small pond. Jack rounds the sheep up on top of the knoll at the slightest hint of a coyote or other predator. I can hear him braying when he detects something on still nights when the windows are open.

Several times a month during the summer they call me at first light to come and dispose of Jack's latest victim for them.

To put it politely, theres not many times the victim doesn't show overwhelming evidence of it's loss of the fight. Wink yeah right

Best of luck.

Problem is though, when a gun goes off, it doesn't make your boots smell bad, the donkey, well that's a whole other story.

Laughing out loud

Of course, people will only look at you funny if they see you talking to donkey. Try talking to a gun and people come unhinged!! Wink yeah right

Best of luck.
