Scent does not hang around long in dry conditions and, while nosing around, the dogs pick up a lot of dust in their sniffers. The Butterfly Valley hunt was successful because the hunters staked out the re- mains of the dog, hung out nearby, and the lion came back to its unfinished meal. The same procedure was fol- lowed in Twain, but the cat didn't return to finish up and But, it's not all business at camp. The leaders of tomorrow have some free time as well.

Lion meals in Twain, cur. rently, have involved kitty cats and the only parts left over from them is a bit of fur and the jawbones. Orange tells me that mountain lions, for some unknown reason, do not eat the jawbones of kitties. Every- thing else is consumed. We are all hoping that this cat is either brought to bay or goes back to the wild before any more pets are lost. It is dif- ficult to understand why a mountain lion is preying on small huge population of deer around, but it seems that pets, they don't stop.
