A gray wolf found dead in Montana's Bitterroot Valley last week was the second this year—a the fourth since 2011—to be killed by mountain lions, according to state Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologists. "I haven't heard of it happening anywhere else," said FWP's Liz Bradley. We wonder where the hypocrites from Defenders of Wlildlife, who rake in millions by misleading the public about the plight of wolves, will stand on this one. Anti-lion? Great Falls Tribune.

FlashPan portable cooking- 5 stars!
I finally had a chance to test out this little cooking machine
last week and I’m glad I did. This thing is awesome, its light weight (easily fits in a back pack) and unlike other portable stoves you don’t have to worry about lugging propane around. I must say I was totally impressed with how fast it heats up! I had my steak cooked and on the plate within 12 minutes of lighting it. And as for cleaning it......what cleaning? All that was needed was a quick wipe with a paper towel! This thing is definitely a keeper. 5 stars!
