CURIOUS WHAT MAKES IT TO THE NEWS: Staring into the eyes of death: Man has a chilling face to face encounter with a mountain lion peering into his rustic home in the Rocky Mountains.  I used to live in this same small mountain town (much closer to the main road) and I can tell you this is not even unusual.  I once took younger boy to kindergarten an hour late because there was a baby bear on the front porch and I assumed mom was nearby.  I finally solved the problem by opening the window a crack and singing, which made the bear run away.  For years after, my son bragged to anyone who’d listen that “mom’s singing scares bears!”
