“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.”

They are here !!! PART deaux
The Missouri Department of Conservation has examined these photos of a mountain lion taken Jan. 12 in a wooded area outside of St. louis, MO and says they are valid.
The have confirmed that the photos are of a mountain lion.
The photos were taken by Garrett Jensen of Chesterfield with a trail camera. The Department of Conservation did not release the exact location, saying it does not want people flocking to the site. It would say only that the site was near the Missouri River.
This is the 13th confirmed report of a mountain lion in Missouri since 1994, and the first in the St. Louis area in that time.
Pretty wild... One things for sure its not the lion that was shot in Ray county last month.
