Mountain lion spotted in Horseshoe Bay
August 26, 2013, 6:59 pm by
Another suspected mountain lion kill was found in Horseshoe
Bay on the Slick Rock Golf Course last week and police said a groundskeeper
reported to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) that he had spotted
a mountain lion earlier in the week on the golf course.
Male mountain lions weigh 110-180 pounds. Females weigh slightly less. The big cats, such as the one represented in this stock photo, have tails measuring more than 2 feet in length.
The Highlanderreceived additional reports of recent sightings near the near the third and seventh
hole of Slick, the fifth hole of Slick and near the third hole at the Summit
Rock Golf Course.
Horseshoe Bay Police Chief Bill Lane said a deer carcass
that was believed to be a mountain lion kill was found several months ago. The
kill found last week, an average size doe deer, was the second for the year.

Approximately 3 months ago I recovered a fresh kill which consisted of the rear half of a fawn which was in my back yard on Silver creek.Several months before I had a visit from one at night. It was identified by the scream, and I recognized it with a flash light because of its eyes.

I guess he doesn't need a " tee time " so I'd let him " play through " anytime he wanted.
