    I was riding with some friends today doing a little street. When we were headed home we came around a blind corner and saw 2 mountain lions in the middle of the road. It was scary at first but luckly a car came and scared them away. I heard rumors about a few mountai lions being in my town but never belived them.(they could have been something else like a cougar so dont get on my case about it)

    Screw that. Count me out. Those things are ridiculous! Although it is said they typically will not go after groups of people. More likely to attack a lone rider.

    Where do you live? I didn't even know they roamed in this part of the country.

    His info says jersey. I'm pretty sure they're not an uncommon site. We have 'em in texas, or so they say. I have yet to see one, maybe that is a good thing?

    For the most part, if they don't want to be seen, you'll have no idea they're around. I've run into a few of them on different ranches in south texas since I was little, though populations have been on the increase across the US for a while now.

    I ran into one on Mt. Tam when I was 12. It looked at me and continued on with whatever it had been doing.

    We have them here in Socal where I am from. I have seen them before, but never while riding. Lately they are becoming more and more common in our hills here.

    They can stay in jersey, I don't particularly care for that place. They just can't mess with my fellow monkeys there. I spent the summer in jersey. Hated it.
