I'd rather open my front door and find a dead mountain lion than a live one.

Would prefer no lions, of course.

Why is it that folks will fight to defend their dialectal form of the word for soda, yet everybody can figure it out when mountain lion, cougar, panther, catamount, and puma are used correctly and interchangeably?

Better than a horse head.

Well, those are clearly all in the same cat-egory, so purrhaps they figure it out right away, without paws.

Cat brought in a live mouse the other day whilst I was in bed.

I was compelled to help it torture the beast when it found its way into crevices around the bed because I didn't want another tenant, nor a roaming mouse in my area.

Never been so happy to see a headless mouse corpse under my bed when I got up in the morning.

That's better than a dead cougar....because you would automatically be a suspect.

A live one finds you.

Evidently they avoid people better than the dead ones.  But obviously prefer fewer mountain lions in their territories.  A live one finds coyotes, but as any apex predator has to control it's own species' population.

People drink soda/pop/etc. every day.

Few people ingest mountain lion regularly.

The Panther

The panther is like a leopard
Except it hasn't been peppered
Should you behold a panther crouch
Prepare to say Ouch
Better yet, if called by a panther
Don't anther

My dogs brought in a live opossum the other night. Chester (the possum) has been a frequenter of our deck for awhile. He was corralled and returned to the backyard. No one involved was hurt, except their feelings.

Precisely.

Dead = merely unexpected

Live = most unwelcome

California? Just let the feral hogs control them.

Don't want to find?

Well, obviously SOMEONE doesn't have access to a flesh eating beetle colony.
