This may be a first...

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 ba d 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 go off these three pictures. For Scott's benefit!

Amazing mule

This is incredible. I've never known of a mule to do something like this. Both my grandpa & my dad had mules when I was a kid, & they could always take care of themselves, & always outwork a horse (with a plow). If dogs came around them & acted aggressively, the mules would kick them head over heels. The one my dad had was great for me to ride, too (always bareback, with a bridle, or sometimes just a hackamore). He & I got along great, but he would never let my dad, or any other grown man ride him. He could throw them in a heartbeat, then kick the hell out of them. My dad was always pissed when I would ride him, because he couldn't. My mother always thought it was hilarious, which pissed my dad off even more. I've never seen one do something like the one in the story, though. Damned impressive!

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. (Mark Twain).
