August 29, 1915: "An attempt by a mountain lion to kill a deer was witnessed last night about sunset at Grizzly Lookout, about fifteen miles from McCloud by W.S. Lofton, who acts as lookout for the Forest Service at that point. Lofton was at his station at the time, and on hearing his big dog excitedly barking, stepped outside and saw the lion as it sprang upon the buck's back. As Lofton and the dog approached the scene of the encounter the lion started down the hill and made his escape without having killed his prey." (Red Bluff Daily News)
