What is the walking gait of a chupacabra? That's usually what these things turn out to be.

It's a streetlight.  Or an ocelot.

For a site called Cryptozoology News, that piece was surprisingly rational.

Not if it's molting, or has mange or some other disease.

I'm not saying it's obviously a mountain lion.  I'm saying that ruling out the most likely scenario (mountain lion, puma, etc), based on that ridiculous video of a television showing a video of a large cat walking down the street, is a bit stupid.

Having seen plenty of pussies in my day I'd say that's one big pussy.  And I'm not lion.

Like I said. Disease, poor video quality of a television set showing a video of poor quality.  Someone saying what you said would be perfectly acceptable.  Someone saying "we can definitely rule out a mountain lion" based solely on this has an agenda.  A silly agenda.

Mrs.Sharpier: Bobcat looking for water


*Anything* looking for water at this point. A couple months back we had a two separate mountain lion sightings in my area (SacTown) that I heard of and who knows how many we've had this summer that I did not hear about. I was kind of hoping to get a glimpse of at least one of them before they were caught, but I don't have a pool so my chances were a tad slimmer than could be called average for the circumstances. Bummer.

Long Beach has 40 lb opossums.

They look like giant rats and live in trees.

Mostly they're nocturnal.

Used to go after those all the time when I was a young guy in the service. Best hunting technique involved statements "You're how much older than me? Bull, I had you pegged at 28, 30 tops. You ever go to a Japanese steakhouse?"

Exiting the high country, in the gloaming, on Buckthorn Rd., headed toward Loveland, CO., my friend braked suddenly as a Mountain Lion loped across the road about 10yds in front of the car, disappearing into the heavily wooded drop-off. My friend pulled over, turned off the car, shoved the keys in her pocket, grabbed her camera and was saying she'd be right back as the woods swallowed her up at the same point the catamount evaporated into the shadows.  Half-an-hour later (and in the dark) I started honking the horn as a beacon.  Friend finally returned and was pi*sed I'd `scared' the poor puss with the horn.
What I remember (other than being nervous as a cat) was that the air had been very still - `evening pause' and when I stepped out of the car the mountain air had all the appeal of a litter box, i.e., pine & cat urine (fetid & `fluffy').
Stay downwind - you'll know it's padding in all pis*y for a predation polka.
