Cougar or Mountain Lion sightings have been increasing in Central TX and so have the attacks on horses, pets and even people. Horses are normally easy prey as they are confined in a pen or barn and cannot get away from these aggressive predators.
The Cougar is a very strong animal that can jump as high as 18 feet which will easily clear the tallest fences. This ability to jump makes it clear that your animals must be protected in enclosed areas that the Cougars cannot enter. Lock barn doors and install barriers such as hog fencing in open barn windows. Enclose your outdoor pets in fenced in areas including a fence at the top to provide total protection for them.
