Mountain lion kills two goats

Robin Hanson, of Sonora, realized that she had not seen her two pet goats all day. 

The goats, Ramsey and Baby, both female, usually spent a rainy day, as was such on Friday, in their shelter. 

As the day progressed, Hanson looked for any sign of her goats, which she supposed had found shelter elsewhere. 

“I found the white goat, Ramsey, laying near the pond. As I got closer, I could see she had been attacked,” Hanson recalled. “I found Baby, the black and white goat, on the hillside by an oak tree. They were both dead.” 

According to Hanson, a trapper working for the U.S. Department of Agriculture told her the goats may have been sleeping under the tree when they were attacked.  

“This was a very difficult thing to see, our pet goats dead like that,” Hanson said. “My husband had just left for work and I did not know what to do with two dead goats in our yard, and an attacker out there too.”
