I do not know about VA laws but IF ONE COMES BY I intend to shoot it....We have problem enough with coyotes, my husband and I have shot over a dozen of coy-dogs in the last year (two set of friends own sheep & goat farms).  I had some close encounters with Lions when I lived in Colorado 25 years ago.

Boy... these cats sure get around. I got these pics (3 of them) in an email just the other day saying they were located in Butler County, AL. Then last month they were in Georgia, Tennessee, Minnisota, Texas, California, and Florida.

It would be neat to know where they really came from, uh, just for the heck of it.

Sure hope you cat reproducing states keep them there. I like to go in the woods and hour before daylight and knowing one of those big, stealthy critters might be watching me would not be any fun. We can't carry a pistol during archery season here. I don't think stabbing at them with an arrow would do any good. Good luck with them. How about after you kill something and your out in the woods cleaning it way after dark? Would one of those big cats show some interest in taking your deer away from you?

Reports of them in Massachusetts, but game officials claim they do not exist. You hear reports about them in most New England states and New York. I believe that Florida now admits that there maybe a few in the Everglades area.

Many years ago I saw a large tan cat like animal for about 30 seconds cross an open field near my home. I always believed that it was a mountain loin, but they do not officially exist in Massachusetts.

I understand that Mountain Lions and coyotes are both becoming a serious problem to pets and even small children in pats of Southern California where hunting is either impossible or very limited. Don't know how true the stories are, but you do see them one or two times a year

That sight would stand the hackle on any hunters back walking to your stand before light. Every sound you hear would have you craning your neck back and forth to see what made it.  %^$^

Florida has panthers already but they are mostly a black color phase animal in the everglades.
Take a kid hunting or fishing. Get them hooked for life.

It would be neat to know where they really came from, uh, just for the heck of it.

 There were up to 9 pics in the original email and one showed an orange ear tag on the mother cat....South Dakota  DNR identified it as one of theirs. Also the owner of the game cam came forward to say the pics were taken in SD.

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.
