    Wow, he or she does not look friendly or happy, but does look healthy. What happened to Rufus? Rod

    Gee, can I pet him? j/k

    Seriously, while rather spooky, it would be quite a sight to see!

    I just showed this to my husband and he said the dogs aren't barking and the cat looks healthy because he just ate the dogs :waa: That would scare the tar out of me!!

    Um, maybe I should rethink my desire to move out to the boonies. I don't think I could sleep for at least a month after seeing that scratching at the door.

    Don't know that I'd want it as a neighbor, but it's beautiful.

    Most of us probably have them as neighbors...we just don't realize it.

    Have been reading the stories on this site about cougars and happily sighed with relief that the reportees lived far-far away. After all, I'm 15 minutes from a city. Oops--a deer hunter found a recently dead one killed by an arrow, and not THAT far away! Yikes! And I thought a woodchuck living in the barn was a problem!

    An expended magazine of 6 12-gauge 00 buckshot would fix the problem right up. Forget majestic, a predator that has no fear of humans is dangerous. Terminate the threat on sight.
