So if I have a suspicion that a mountain lion has been taking some of my goats and sheep and since I've never directly dealt with this animal, what should I do?
1) If I waited out for a few nights to shoot it, what are my chances of actually getting it?
2) Would I want to leave the dogs inside or let them sit on the porch with me?
3) Would a flood light over the livestock keep the mountain lion away?
4) Would I want to keep the porch lights on or turn them off while I'm waiting for it?
Any other advice is certainly appreciated.
