Big Cat Up a Giant Saguaro
KPHO.com CBS Phoenix is running a story and some pictures you won't see every day. Apparently someone snapped a few photos of an adult male mountain lion at the top of a thirty foot giant saguaro.
"No doubt it's a rare event (to see a lion atop a cactus). It's not the kind of place most animals would take shelter from danger," said Randy Babb, a biologist for Arizona Game and Fish.
While its not clear from the available pictures why the cat went up the cactus, the Arizona Game and Fish believes the cougar was treed by hunting dogs.
