Mountain Lion on Monolith Loop
by Peter Kile
One day, I was out riding with my dad and my dogs out on a trail called Monolith out in Kingman AZ and my dad left me in the dust while I waited on my dog. She was only 7 months old at the time and not very smart so I had to go real slow and careful. I was pedaling casually and noticed some deer off to my left on the side of a mountain, maybe 500 yards away. All of a sudden, they took off. I didn’t think it was us that scared them and out of nowhere, I see this mountain lion run at the doe. It jumped and grabbed the doe by the neck and drug it over the mountain. The rest of the ride was a little nerve wracking so I started booking it back to the road. Best ride of my life still.
