Cool BIG Mountain Lion Pics!

Yep, it's from FB and I have no idea of the story....but this Lion is a BIG ONE!

From what I can tell, it was killed in Arizona and the poster captioned his Dad's 1st Lion. There is a reference to Navajo on the post. Not much more information but the pic's are really something I think.

Just to share and not guessing the typical GS response on weight or other doubts...enjoy, I hope!

Uhhh, what? LOL, not going to argue but your comment is one I've never seen on the GS with ALL the Lion pics. But, I would be curious to discover what you based your comment on?

One thing is for certain...any posts on lions always stir up folks so I'm willing to learn...convince me...
