A gang of four mountain lions shot on a back porch in Colorado. “Out of Africa” in Colorado. Certainly, not something you would see on any ordinary day.
These beautiful animals were thirsty and looked very healthy. The picture of the mountain lion standing next to the porch chairs and table gives you an idea just how large this animal is. I suspect this is the mother. There are two that are younger with a beautiful silvery coat and the other looks bigger.
These mountain lions look well fed. I assume they hunt in a pack and a deer has absolutely no chance against these four.
They hung around quite casually; not afraid of running into a human being. The other way around would have certainly been quite different. The cameraman was very smart to film them quietly and stay out of sight because if they noticed him that might have invited another curious invitation; not a good idea.
But now that I think about this very unusual circumstances, the cameraman and owner of the house knew they had hung around more than once and he provided the large pot of water for them to drink and had planned to eventually record them. You’ll notice the four big cats left going down the stairs and didn’t exert or waste any energy leaving that for their next meal!
