My post on Mountain Lion attacks was not intended to frighten nor to 
indicate danger.  The California situation is very different than here.  
We have enough deer and other critters to feed the very, very small 
number that may be roaming Missouri woods.

Yes, urban sprawl and heavy recreation use (hiking and mountain biking, 
mainly) in rugged areas with (as in Cuyamacca SP) large lion 
populations--at least before the fires--have accelerated human/cat 
encounters there.
