Mountain lions are eating California wild donkeys. Why scientists say this is a good thing and a big problem
Giant wild donkeys have become common in California’s forests
Now, the animals have moved down from the north. The donkeys are in such good condition that it is being reported that they can be used to make a living in mountain and desert regions around the world.
California’s wild donkeys look to the north. The animals are headed that way as well.
Wild animals aren’t hard to see in the Sierra Nevada, just north of Yosemite.
There’s the wild turkey, the gray wolf, the coyote and the mountain lion.
A study by the University of California, Davis, and the California Academy of Sciences found that more than 1,200 wild donkeys live in California’s forests.
That’s almost all of them.
But in the last several years, they’ve started moving down. The animals are in such good condition that it can be used to make a living in mountain and desert regions all over the world.
Wild donkeys are a species of the donkey family, or the dung beetle family, and these animals make a living eating dead animals.
The animals feed on a wide variety of animals in California’s forests, including rodents, and insects.
“This is a very special animal, an animal that has become the symbol of the Sierra Nevada as the largest pack-hunted mammal in North America,” said David E. Garrow of the University of California, Davis.
Garrow’s research shows that the animals have been coming down from the north in increasing numbers.
He and his colleagues collected samples of donkeys in the Sierra Nevada’s grasslands near Truckee, where they found that the animals were moving south with increasing frequency.

They also measured the weight of the animals to determine whether or not they were using enough grass to get the
