Yep, that was a close call alright!
Stupid law, they should let you keep the cat if you can pretty much show it was self defense, and convince the GW which they did.

In Alaska for Defense of Life and property kills they confiscate the animal, but then once a year they do a fur auction and the skins are up for auction, Do they do that in Texas, if so she could get the pelt.

She shot it in Colorado, not Texas.

What is that around its neck? Looks like it might be a radio transmitter or some kind of collar.

Awesome story.

Your right child, I mean young lady. It wasn't a bobcat.

Story doesn't really add up!

First part says they see hunting IN NEW MEXICO unit 52 SOUTH of Colorado, but in New Mexico not Colorado!

Then later in the story it says:
"Unfortunately for Alyssa, game wardens confiscated the cat. Considered a varmint in Texas, Colorado has seasons and special tags for mountain lion hunting, and killing one without a tag is a violation, unless the hunter can prove self defense."

Which fully suggests she killed it in Colorado!

Lastly, how is the DEAD cat sitting up on his front legs???

Close call if the story is accurate. Not to downgrade the event in any way, but it looks like a pretty small cat (relative to other mountain lions).

Another version has it in NM with NM game wardens involved. First story just got some of the info mistaken.
Cool story! Dad has done a good job teaching her.

All in see is an exit wound, matted down bloody fur and a leaf on the young lady's knee. confused2
