Kitty. I says Kitty would win. Although....Dog is strong...

Thinking you are at the top of the food chain is a great way to end up at the bottom of the nutrition pyramid.

Mountain Lion is stronger, has sharp claws, and has nasty fang.

There are reported cases of family dogs confronting mountain lions to protect a family member.

Some have died from wounds and some ran the cat off.

In a generic one vs one I think the cat would win but if the dog was motivated to protect a loved one he would fight harder and could possibly win.

The Mountain lion. They tend to be a bit bigger than Great Danes, and cats have 5 weapons whereas dogs have 1. Pumas are more agile, faster, more vicious; in pretty much every field, they're better.

Plus, it is a hound. Hounds aren't built for fighting as much as they are for chasing, barking, and nipping at heels.

The Dane might be able to run the Cat off. The cat might fear the Dog's size, and bark. According to the Wiki, Great Dane's are usually 30" high at the shoulders, for a Male, and Cougar's are usually only 22" high at the shoulders.

The dogs that defeated such a cat, were not likely Great Dane's. Look at the difference in the paws. That Cat could break the Dane's legs. In a one on one death match, the Cat would have the advantage.

Smaller, Faster, Stronger, More aggressive, more energy.

The Dane does not stand a chance.

A smaller, stronger animal, such as a Pit, Mastif, Doberman, or German Shepard would have a better chance. Or better yet, a Rottweiler.

Tell me, my friend, have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Yea, but i mean Great danes do have advantages of there own, i mean great danes are a mix of Mastiff, boar hound, and irish wolfhounds, and irish wolfhounds were used as war dogs by the greeks! But alas, i do agree that there are better qualified candidates that could go up against a Mountain Lion, such as a rottweiler.

Mountain Lion says Steak.

Danes (dogs, not people) may be large, but also come included with all kinds of "special features" such as a multitude of health problems. Plus, they really aren't built for tearing up and destroying. Not as advanced of a predator.

The mountain lion has an extremely powerful build, a much more agile body, a longer movable tail for added balance, a skeletal structure which can bend more and avoid a lot of unnecessary damage, has sharper claws with more movable limbs to be able to claw an opponent from a range without getting it's head in the way too early. I definitely go Mountain Lion on this one.

They're a mix of hounds. Hounds are not designed expressly for killing, they're bred to be good at flushing out prey. Hounds used as war dogs were mainly used as distractions/inconveniences. I mean, Chihuahas were used as war dogs, it doesn't mean they'll be able to take on a mountain lion. If any dog could take out a puma, I'm think it'd be a sheepdog or one of the primal/pariah dogs.

Good answer, riffington. Then again, the vultures almost always win.

I'd say a Rhodesian Ridgeback would stand a far better chance than a great dane. The danes are just too large and slow.
