Predator Xtreme reported, “Mountain Lion Wipes Out Farm’s Petting Zoo” in early July. The owners of Agua Linda Farm, a petting zoo farm near Amado, Arizona in the Santa Cruz Valley, had never seen a mountain lion on the premises until about a month ago. It destroyed sheep and goats. The mountain lion was treed and shot.

The Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Ranch at Picacho Peak, near Casa Grande, had a big cat that took down some of their ostriches a while back. There have been hundreds of sightings mountain lions in the Tucson area. Last year, there were warning signs in Sabino Canyon. I have spoken to two people that have spotted them in the Catalina Foothills. The only ones I have seen are at the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, pictured here.
