Tonight when I was out feeding the cows I had something really strange happen. All of a sudden both of my cattle dogs just ran up to me and started
freaking out. They were both cowering down and looking behind them, and all around, like something was after them. They were right with me the whole
time so they must have seen something. Neither of these dogs are afraid of anything, so whatever it was must have really put the fear of death into
them. After that they wouldn't stray two feet from me, and they were nose to the ground sniffing everything. Any noise and they would cower and
flinch (and immediately look behind them)
I'm not talking just mild reactions here, but very profound fear. I know it wasn't coyotes because the ACD will full-on chase coyotes, even 2 or 3
of them at a time. Whatever this was, was far more scary than a coyote to them. They were really scared. I mean like really, REALLY, scared!
I went inside and told my wife about it, and she kind of laughed it off at first thinking I was just seeing things. So I told her to come outside
with me and see for herself. She comes out and they start doing the same thing, but this time they were staring off in one general direction all the
time...down into our draw. And down in the draw is where our big herd of deer is, and they stay down there in the trees.
About two years ago we found some big cat prints down in the draw, and then about a week later a guy about four miles away shot a cougar in his garage
one night. We didn't see anything after that.
Normally, on a big moon night like tonight the coyotes would be howling up a storm, but tonight it's silent, completely silent. And normally at
sunset I would see our deer herd up on the road at dusk. The two big bucks would be strutting around. Tonight...nothing.
I wonder what's up? Something spooked everyone, and the dogs saw whatever it was. I didn't see a thing, but humans seldom do with our poor
I'm thinkin' big cat! Not good!
