The chance of having a dangerous encounter with a mountain lion in Missouri is very, very small—almost non-existent. People, pets and livestock are at much greater risk from automobiles, stray dogs and lightning strikes than they are from mountain lions. However, if you do encounter a mountain lion in wild Missouri, these responses may improve your chances of avoidance and survival.
