What is the chance of getting a pic of a Mountain Lion in the wild?

Slim to none.

So we seek out places like AnimalArk in Reno.  It’s an animal sanctuary for injured or parentless animals.  A small facility.  And not very photographer friendly.  That’s not what they are there for.  They rescue animals.  My only decent shot was a Mountain Lion that was hit by a car and just happened to have an animal biologist collect the injured animal and took him in to the animal hospital.  Now a few years later the Lion is healthy and fun to watch in it’s large and natural enclosure.   In post I turned down the highlights a bit.  Then turned up the blacks a little to add a little contrast.  I was shooting through glass late in the day with glare on the glass.  I also cropped the pic about 10%
