ShannonKW: johnson442: What a cougar may look like:

[blueprintprojectz.com image 425x319]

What a majestic beast. It stirs my heart to know that our nation nurtures such wildlife.


And they're always in season!

hbk72777: Worst we had on Long Island was the occasional fox.

Though now that I'm in NC, I've heard growls at night that sound like sound effects from the tv show Manimal. We're talking guttural.

/I don't go outside at night anymore


I get up and walk for exercise around my neighborhood before I go to work; it's always well before sunrise. I've seen deer walking down the streets, foxes, raccoons, and lots of rabbits, as well as the usual cats and dogs. There's a colony of flying squirrels behind my house, a family of raccoons, and a pesky opossum that the cats hate.

/lives in Raleigh
//never heard noises you described

People, its a 20 pound cat that has many of the same physical characteristics of a cougar. Look at the picture in the article.

The caller didn't say it was a full GROWN cougar, but a young one. A young cougar would be about that size.

And wouldn't be that far from its mother. Are you going to send YOUR kids out to play by those woods without having it checked out?

/ but by all means, go ahead and laugh at the guy for his idiocy because you haven't taken the time to think this all the way through.

I sound fat: People, its a 20 pound cat that has many of the same physical characteristics of a cougar. Look at the picture in the article.


Four legs, a tail, two ears. By god you're right! It's just like a cougar!


And wouldn't be that far from its mother. Are you going to send YOUR kids out to play by those woods without having it checked out?

You sound fat, so I'm going to assume your kids are too fat for a cougar to make off with one. So just relax a bit and have another twinkie.

A state wildlife biologist reviewed photos of the cat and determined Monday it was not a cougar.

This is why having a college degree is so important. We MUST have experts!

I'm from West Salem, Oregon. The Best Salem. Being 68 years old, a cougar in my back yard would lave to be a least 108 years old. The bad thing is...I'd still hit it.

If you're calling in a domestic cat as a cougar, one would hope.

Cleanse the gene pool.

Pretty sure they won't mistakenly think a real cougar is a housecat. A least not while sober.

FFS...

what the hell am I always doing wrong? Is my satire not that obvious or something?

I aint mad at you, I am pretty annoyed that I cannot find ways to communicate to people when my intent is satire without using "I kid" at the end


Your Boobies made me laugh out loud. Your satire has not and does not go to waste!

Jirafa: Come to think of it, that could be a useful skill all on its own: the ability to create truly convincing faux-derp

They have that, it's called a republican.

This article reminds me of an episode of Monster Quest from a few years back where they were investigating "monster black cats" in the midwest. They showed some home video someone had taken of these "monster cats" and it looked like my cat JetDry was walking across someone's back yard. He is 18 pounds of muscle, but he is still just a cat.

I find this article seriously offensive!

It's not a Maine-Coon cat.

It's a Maine-African-American cat.

C'mon!!
 
2012-06-07 08:04:51 AM
Also, I disagree with the experts.

This HAS to be a cougar!

It is obviously ROARING in the photo!

hobblekitty: my cat JetDry


There has to be a story behind that name.

/cat named Booboo because while we were trying to figure out a name for her, she bit the refrigerator power cord and slightly electrocuted herself
//name morphed over time to "boobs"

Funny I have a 27 pound Maine-Coon and very friendly cat never heard of one attacking. This cat should be and is very happy to be kept inside close to it's owner as they are very sensitive and get attached to one main person.

MmmmBacon: Can't blame subby for putting forth this article, really. I'm from Salem, and the Derp runs deep here. Odds are this person didn't even think it might be a Maine-Coon before calling the authorities.


He may not have ever seen A Maine coon or a rag doll cat they are not common.

May have really thought it was a baby bob cat or whatever.

The My Little Pony Killer: Maybe its owners should think about getting a collar before they let it wander around outside.


The reasoning I have heard is that cats are often squeezing through tight situations, and a collar could get caught and strangle the cat.

With that cat, however, it's probably just as likely that it be mistaken for a wild animal and shot.

I used to have a 27-pound Maine Coon. On top of that, he was as hairy as a wooly mammoth. Dogs used to run away from him every time I took him out. Even if that's not a Maine, I could understand how people could confuse a Maine Coon for a wildcat.

Even one pizza delivery guy was afraid of it.
