    The guy is very fortunate. He did the right thing.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    He probably just made the top slot of The Mountain Foundation's "most wanted list" for killing that cat.......good for him.

    Holy cow!!!! That's a MAN!! I've had 20 lb or less house cats(wild cats) caught and had to free them. They will rip you up!! I couldn't image an 80 lb cat coming at me!! Don't blame the guy one bit for killing it.

    That's too funny to run into this today. Just this after noon my Dad and I were talking about this on the phone. About how in the U.S. there are very few animals to worry about in the wild. A mountain lion and Grizly (?) bear, the big bear out north west. And we were even saying about how even then you rarely hear of attacks....I log on tonight and see this...

    I can just imagine trying to hold down a cougar while applying a rear-naked choke.
    There's quite a few MMA fighters that train up in the high altitudes of the Rockies..gotta
    wonder if it was one of them that got attacked.

    My dad always said..."Dogs balls in my mouth are better than mine in his" Chocked out a lion I think I would have that put on a T-shirt if I were him.

    You are a better man than me. I got tangled up with a cougar and could not get away. Here is a picture of her all choked up, and incidentally she does not make for a bad Cat Skinner either (not to mention a wonderful wife and mother).
