In case anyone is curious about the range of the cougar, one of our country’s most elusive creatures, read this.
It’s funny, really, when people who report big cat sightings in areas not considered habitat get blown off for mistaking a stray dog or maybe even a little bobcat. Look people, these things are out there. Incidents like this call into question the border disputes regarding wolves and bison in and around Yellowstone. Hopefully—and it’s shame a cat had to die—this instance can serve as one more reason why we need to allow animals, as the Patagonia environmental project states, the freedom to roam.
