National Park Catches Mountain Lion Jumping High Fence [VIDEO]

We’re gonna need a bigger fence.

Mountain lions are incredibly smart and elusive creatures, so it was exciting for the folks at the Wind Caves National Park to catch some shots of a young female mountain lion taking on their perimeter fence.

Like most predator animals, mountain lions don’t care about your fences. If they can scale them, you’re out of luck. This fence was over seven feet high and looked to be an easy hurdle for the cat. Watch the video below which shows the trail camera photos they were able to obtain.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Wind Caves National Park, which is located in Hot Springs, South Dakota, it’s a truly wonderful organization and place. From their Facebook Page,

Wind Cave National Park protects unique cave resources and preserves a mixed-grass prairie and its wildlife while providing for the enjoyment of the public.

The purpose of Wind Cave National Park is to protect the unique Wind Cave resources and preserve and enhance the mixed-grass prairie and native wildlife, while providing for the enjoyment of the public.

Can you believe how agile these creatures are? It’s truly incredible to be blessed with the opportunity to see them in the wild, even from a trail camera’s point of view.
