"These pics came from a guy in AZ. Yes, the mule killed the mountain lion. The lion had been stalking them for the better part of the morning, on the way out to a hunt. They were pretty sure it was after one of the dogs. The cat ambushed them, and the mule pictured tossed its rider and went into attack (defense) mode, the horses scattered and shots were fired but no one was sure if they hit the cat or not. Unfortunately, it wasn't until it was almost over that one of the guys started snapping pics. The mule finally stomped the cougar to death after biting and throwing it around like a rag doll. The dogs wouldn't even come close until the mule settled down.

I can't post the pics either, but that is one tough mule. Looks like he BIT the panther to death!
Amazing isn't it? I had a heck of a time exiting the site and getting back to FR though.
From the title, I thought Hillary kicked someone to death!!

Where is Festus?
Cougar equals terrorist. Mule equals US military.
Please tell how you post pics.
Mule to Cougar: "I'll be your Huckleberry"
It's a good thing this didn't happen in california or that mule would be in trouble.
I nominate this ferocious mule to be an honorary Republican. He is too tough a fighter to be a democrat jack ass.
That kicks ASS! LOL. Awesome pics.
Okay, I'll bite:
Pictures have been doctored.
Mule's ears not far enough back for a bloody fight in at least one of the pics.
Dogs standing back and suffering the shame of being protected by a mule instead of joining the fun.
Cougar following pack train all morning?
Just another Dem trying to get credit for effective, bold action.
Moral of the story - don't get a mule angry at you.
My mother grew up on a farm and they depended on their mules..for work, for transportation and they were also loved like pets..THIS is a one terrific mule..I love cats and think mountain lions are beautiful..but do not want one to stalk me!
