    That's just a clouded cougar out on the prowl. They're all over the place in Deer Valley.

    Pretty f'n crazy, and that would account for the air of authenticity it had... but the baby and crossing the stream. Total hilarity. Guy deserves an Emmy just for riding a buffalo around. I remember seeing it before in that thread now that you mention it. Good recall by you.

    You'd think these things would be showing up on game cameras... seems like everyone has one set up.

    This is from Italy, but pretty cool:

    There is a certain way a mountain lion moves. It strikes a chord in the lizzard brain. That and the tail make them unmistakable for anything else.
    No longer stuck.

    Fur traps in eastern Canada showed results from two cougars - the video also looks suspicious

    Saw a big one between Jackman and Rockwood in July. Dad and I were headed out for something from camp and watched it come out of the woods, stroll across the road and dissappear on the other side probably 500 yards in front of us. Took us a second but we both blurted out "mountain lion" at the same time. Unmistakable profile and the bulk of the long tail is a dead giveaway.

    Plenty of lynx in that area the past few years too. Be interesting to see what I come across in November. Rumour has it there are some wolf coyote hybrid around, but not sure I belive that one.

    Probably just a catamount.

    Thought I remembered something about this being on NPR...

    Seems the one that was hit in Conn. inspired a bit of conversation.

    Mountain lions will only help solve Conecticut's deer problem if they can refrain from running the things over. Which based on the evidence seems unlikely.

    At the point, I realized the story was really about a small deer. No doubt he did shit himself, though.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Buttah - I'll bet it was legit. A local kid (here in central NH) took a picture of one in his backyard last year. It's tail was concealed by the bushes, so "officials" said they couldn't confirm what it was. Every other part of it looked exactly like a mountain lion.

    Back in the early 90's, there was a high school kid out running in CO, who was killed by one. That story still freaks me out. Scary animals for sure.

    When I was dispatching in Pueblo CO there was a wilderness ranger who had a real close encounter with a group of cats. We were listening to him on the radio sounding really, really scared for his life, and working the phones real hard to find a helicopter to launch to hopefully spook them away from him. It was gnarly but he was OK, I think his name was Jeff Thompson...if any of you know him, I know it's a small world in the forest service and whatever. I recall he actually swatted one of them with a shovel.

    Edit: Here it is: http://www.denverpost.com/2005/08/25...patrol-policy/

    I have to say, it was a harrowing thing to listen to, knowing at each radio silence this guy might be getting eaten alive out there. High stress deal.

    Area was crawling with moose. Here is a pic I took of a big male from a safe distance on the same day

    So far, we have had about 10 sightings in Tennessee. Many of which were in Humphreys County west of Nashville. Genetics studies from hair collected they were similar genetically to cougars in South Dakota.

    On the above pick, don't think it is a cat, more likely in the canine family.
