Mountain Lion Spotted Sprinting Along Highway
Occurred on February 2, 2024 / Butte, Montana, USA
Info from Licensor: "My boyfriend and I were driving down Homestake Pass near Butte, Montana when we saw this female mountain lion on our left sprinting across the road, jumping over the center divider, and crossing right in front of us. We started slowing down as we were on the highway and I pulled out my phone as soon as I saw it and started filming it running along side of us on the right side of the road. She finally jumped onto the rocks and ran back into the woods. We were going about 30-40mph. Later on we saw online that a hound hunter actually went to that area later that day and dumped his hounds on the lions tracks and caught the lion. It turns out that the mountain lion had two healthy kittens with her and the hounds-man left the mom and kittens alone and informed people to let the animals be. Credit: Sophia Ritachka"
