Mountain Lion Repellent Plants
I haven't posted for a while. I once created a garden for blind children. Now I about to do it again on a larger scale. Actually it will be a park for all handicapped children. I have 80 acres in Southern California where I am creating the park. So far I have made a large pond and put up a greenhouse. The pond isn't linede yet, but it did fill part way during the last round of rains.
Now for my problem. The pond attracted a family of mountain lions. The male's paws are over 6" across, the female's about 5", and the cubs are over 2". Is there anything I can plant (or do) to drive away these cats. I dont want to kill them, just suggest that they find a different area than where we will have the kids.
I have heard that mint plants drive away lions. I have also heard that geese will make so much noise that the cats go away. Do these work? Any other thoughts. Thanks.
