Tommy Kerr’s Wild Kingdom
Today Tommy has a dramatic mountain lion rescue from Utah.

 

Can anyone tell us say about where this is? The big cat is extremely powerful, as you see when he breaks the tree limb and tosses it far away. He’s caught for the moment in the trap, but once freed, can easily jump 8 or more feet in the air.

Noble creatures, all. The most exciting and inspiring vid I've seen in years.

I’m thinking they don’t want to tranquillize the big cat with a dart because they can’t be certain of how the drug might affect him, or what the side effects might be.  

Tommy says, “These men are very brave,” and we can also say very compassionate and kind. Often trappers and hunters leave an animal like this to die. 

Thanks for another fabulous video, Tommy!
