Maine Coon & Mountain Lion Have a Staring Contest in Boulder, Colorado

I recently went on vacation in Colorado and I have been there a few times — I have always wanted to see some of the wildlife out there, but never had any luck.

Last week in Boulder, Colorado, Zeus — an 11-year-old Maine Coon — had the chance to stare down one of his bigger relatives, a young mountain lion. Find out more after the jump.

Gail Loveman, Zeius’ owner, was working in her office when she heard a noise and turned to see a young mountain lion on her porch. She grabbed her camera and began snapping pictures — that’s when Zeus entered the room.

Zeus and the mountain lion stared each other down for about five minutes. According to Loveman, Zeus normally stands his ground and hisses at other animals that come through, but this time he was more relaxed and curious.

According to the Colorado Division of Wildlife, seeing a mountain lion is very rare — they are very elusive animals. Loveman says, ‘She feels blessed’ to have seen a mountain so close.
