Mammas are always there for their children and they are the best protectors for their children. When they see that their children are in danger they immediately step in. this is the case with the mare and foal in this video when a cougar pays them a visit.
The video shared on YouTube by Talea Mativier has the following description: “Footage off of one of our security cameras Monday night, April 27, 2015. AQHA mare, Top This Sail aka “Jessie” and her 2 day old foal, “Flash,” by Nu Steps To Cash get an unwelcome visitor.
There were actually 3 cougars at the panels for 6 hours. The one that entered was a yearling cub. The cougars attacked our dog the following morning and we had missing barn cats so decided to look at the security cameras to see what was going on the night before.
Surprise! Great mama! The cougars will be euthanized via lead injection if we catch them in person.” This mother horse wasn’t playing around and she was determined to send the cougar away even if it meant for her to suffer the injuries. Watch the video!
