Eighty-year-old Martha Smith says there was no time for fear when
her border collie confronted a mountain lion near her home. "I could
see the tail twitching, and he was snarling and spitting," she
recalls. Smith shot at the cat with her .22-caliber rifle, but
missed, and ran inside to dial 9-1-1. Informed help was a long way
off, Smith decided shed have to deal with the agitated cat herself.
"I shot him in the light spot under his leg where I knew his heart
would be" she explained. "You do what you have to do - you don't
have time to be afraid" Smith has been versed in riflecraft since
adolescence, when she herded sheep on the family ranch. "My sister
and I were put on horseback with the lunch, the water canteen and a
gun" she recalls.
