WARNING: HARD TO WATCH VIDEO. This is an difficult to watch video if you are a cat lover but the strong of heart will steel themselves. It is, however, a reminder of the dangers to house cats from predators in parts of America. Attacks from predators is not something that concerns the cat owners of Europe except perhaps in Eastern Europe and southeast France where the Eurasian lynx is present.
However in the western half of the US the dangers from predators is a major factor in deciding whether or not to let your cat wander outside (dangers to cats). Except for Florida, officially, the mountain lion is no longer present in the eastern half of the US although some residents of the easter United States would disagree with the experts.
The coyote is a far more dangerous predator to domestic and feral cats because there are more of them. There are an estimated 20k-40k pumas in the US (source: mountainlion.org). Half a million coyotes are killed annually in the US and the population is either stable or increasing.
