semiotix: TFA says that the homeowner called her dog and the cougar retreated. Must have been one hell of a dog, because I'm guessing that (a) a cougar is a match for even a pretty good sized-dog, and (b) the "fight or flight" response gets tilted heavily in favor of "fight" when "flight" involves scootching back through that confusing little door. Maybe the cougar just got the tip in, and then pulled out... as it were.


Cougars (and most wild predators) are really averse to fighting without a good reason. Even if they're more than a match for an opponent there's a significant chance of getting injured. It doesn't take much of an injury to get infected or slow them down enough that they won't be able to effectively hunt.

Dogs on the other hand have people who will back them up in the fight, they don't have to hunt their food, and if they're hurt they'll be cared for.

Jument: Lunaville: "people don't understand the breadth of the cougar problem"

It's not a cougar problem. It's a sprawl problem. The poor guy quoted lost animals and seems to derive a livelihood from living in cougar territory/habitat. Most of his neighbors, though, likely live out there because they can get more house for less money than living closer into a town or city and in this country gas is relatively cheap.

I will concede it would scare the living hell out of me if a cougar got into the house with my dogs and kids. Kitty, you stay outside.

I live in a small town because I can get a lot more house for the money and commute 14 miles to work (which isn't at all bad, but to get into the Big City I have a much longer drive), so getting a kick. We have a few cougars but mostly deer, with some bear and coyotes. I like it. The cats stay inside though! Occasionally people complain about the wildlife. It really pisses me off. A world without wildlife would suck and we're displacing them. Why can't we just let the poor bastards live as best as they can?


Really people, would you mind sharing yourplanet??

Oh sure. I realize a cougar won't come at me and my dog if we're sitting in, say, a lean-to. I guess I just figured it'd be a little disoriented by walls and doors and weird surfaces. Depending on the doggie-door, it might not look like a viable route of escape to a confused and frightened cougar once it had swung shut.

Anyway, I guess it all worked out. No harm done, and we got a thread full of amusing double-entendres, when we should have been working. Yaaaaaaaay internet.

Imagine having a cougar as a pet. I'd call it Xavier Cougar.

/yeah, yeah, so lame, I know. But I'm ok with that!

It is wonderful. I like the Dos XX "Most Interesting Man in the World" ad campaign, one of which shows him cooking in his kitchen when a cougar jumps up on the counter. He scolds it and shoos it off as though it were a house cat.

It pleases me.

Can they smash a beer can flat? Saw a mature gal do that on America's Got Talent once. Gave me some serious wood.
