Here is the original story and event.
Mountain Lion Attacks Child on Hiking Trail Near Cupertino Winery.
When I arrived at the location the whole area was blocked off, and their are search dogs in the area, so the MidPeninsula Regional Open Space Project, Fish and Wildlife, or Wildlife Management shut it down.
Reason is: the dog handlers/slash trappers, don’t want the scents confusing the search dogs. Technically it is believed that Mountain Lions, will stay near the area where the alleged attack occurred for several days. A Fish and Wildlife employee informed me that the cats in the area are already confusing the search dogs by criss-crossing the area repeatedly.
There are always signs posted informing hikers of the possibility of Mountain Lion encounters. In those areas, parents or guardians or chaperones must never let a child follow behind them. Children must always be in front of the parents or guardians.
Update: California Fish and Wildlife shot and killed the Mountain Lion on September 10 2014.
Always plenty of warning to visitors about the possibility of a Mountain Lion encounter.

A deceased and decaying wild horse.
I have delved into the world of aerial photography via the purchase of a DJI quadcopter. Here’s the story: I went to the area where there are a lot of wild horses east of Reno Nevada. I did not know there was a dead or decaying wild horse at this location until I uploaded the content to my computer. If I would have seen the horse I would have tried to figure how it died(whether by vehicle etc.) This is the first time my cameras have been able to look out to places I haven’t been to on foot.
If you’d like to see the model of quadcopter I bought check it out here.
BUT BUYER BEWARE. QUADCOPTERS ARE NOT EASY TO FLY AND THEY DO CRASH. IF YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER THE COPTER YOU MUST BE PREPARED TO PICK YOU’RE CRASH SPOT. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE CONTROL OVER THE COPTER THEN IT COULD BE A TOTAL LOSS.
