Wouldn't she be a saber toothed tiger by now?

Hard to say, as she was emminently doable in Two And A Half Men, but I digress. This thing actually got a chunk out of the horse's fetlock before getting the Marlin treatment. HH

Above 8K. They're now coming down routinely. HH

Habitat change due to the extended drought?

Could be, although the snowpacks here haven't changed much and remain high. I was up for elk three weeks ago and there was water everywhere. HH

That would make an awesome full body mount.
Pics??

Luckily it was taken before someone got mauled or killed.


Wait..... Did I just refer to a COUGAR and "full body mount"??!
And with you guys talking about Morgan Fairchild...........

They are almost everywhere. We have even had sightings in the outskirts of Cincinnati. I live north of Cincy and they are getting more common up here.

Any pics HH? Hopefully the mare won't have to be put down. Just curious, how much flack, if any did the DNR give your neighbor? Pays to go armed.

Heck I am only at 2300 ft and we have cougars in the neighborhoods regularly. Last week I got an emergency message from the school saying the bus drivers were taking the kids to their front doors because of one in our neighborhood. Saw a couple dads out with their compound bows walking the beat to get their kids. Too funny.

I've not heard that yet.

I've heard stories of big cats around SW Ohio, may have even seen one once, but I certainly wouldn't use the word 'common' in any sense. IF there're big cats around here, I really, really doubt they're naturally occurring.

We've had rumors of cougars here in Iowa for years. Then a few years ago we had a few substantiated reports. One was shot and the other hit by a car. Some people still thought they were just extremely isolated incidents. Then a few months ago the Des Moines Police Department shot one inside the Des Moines city limits, not far from an elementary school.

I hope the horse recovers, and that it was only a flesh wound. :sad: :angel:

I like Cougars. Just not when they go all aged-anorexic like Courtney Cox. She looks like the CryptKeeper.

I love big cats, but I wouldn't take kindly to them eating my pets and livestock (if I had any).

They are shoot on sight here. I've seen tracks, no animals though. We've been thinking about doing some predator hunts out at the ranch though.

I live just outside Ft Hood, it is fairly common to see them on my drive to work.
They seem to be taking more than a few deer lately as the population is decreasing around that area.

There have been reports of big cats on the western edge of Cincinnati. What first caught my attention was the location that I heard a couple of years ago. It just happened to be basically on land my uncle used to own.

Northern Butler and some of Preble have had sightings. Two co-workers of mine have found tracks on their properties in the west Middletown area. One of them said the DNR was trying to keep it quiet.

We have had cougars in these parts for a while now. Oh, you mean the feline? Nevermind!

Carry on.

Sounds like what's going on in Michigan. There has been sighting and trail cam pics for years, but the DNR wouldn't admit to it. They are finally coming around. Same with Wolves in the northern lower.

Yeah, the ones around Marquette Co. are now verified by the DNR. There have been unconfirmed sightings in my area for years, but no pictures. I spend a _lot_ of time in the woods, all seasons, have yet to find a track. I've seen bobcats, bears, foxes, coyotes, etc., but not even a big cat track. There are tons of deer in my area, too, so feeding should be pretty good.
