Mountain Lions almost never kill domestic animals, or humans. This lion is wierd: sick, old, or not afraid of humans. If it attacks domestic animals again, and it'll be hungry about a week after it ate the goat, it's a threat to people. If it goes about it's normal business and kills/eats the local wild deer, we'll never see it again.
Thank you Mr Begun for your tempered response. I live on Tripp Rd also.

Thanks, Mr. Boyce, for the clarification. There are a lot of myths about mt. lions - such as was posted about them having to be sick or old, etc. to eat livestock. That's simply not the case - it depends on the species of livestock as well as the predator.
