Mountain lion treed – by a Jack Russell terrier!

A mountain lion found it was no match for a Jack Russell terrier which trapped it up a tree on a farm in South Dakota.

The dog’s owner, Chad Strenge, heard frantic barking near the family’s farm in Colman, Moody County.

He discovered the 150lb male lion, also known as a cougar, clinging to the top of a tree with 17lb terrier Jack at the bottom.

Mr Strenge, helped by his dog, chased the mountain lion and shot it dead.

He trees cats all the time,” Mr Strenge told The Argus Leader newspaper. “I suppose he figured it was just a cat.”

Jack Russells are scared of nothing!

    You have the wrong picture. What you have is a cat that treed a black bear. Take a look at the original AP story and you’ll see where you have erred
