That's fantastic!  What a rush!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Very cool!

cat chops are definitely just like pork  :EAT:

(always cook cougar or bear well to avoid trichinosis)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trichinosis

Quote
- All meat (including pork) can be safely prepared by cooking to an internal temperature of 165 °F (74 °C) or higher for 15 seconds or more.
 - Wild game: Wild game meat must be cooked thoroughly (see meat preparation above) Freezing wild game does not kill all trichinosis larval worms. This is because the worm species that typically infests wild game can resist freezing.

Unsafe and unreliable methods of cooking meat include the use of microwave ovens, curing, drying, and smoking, as these methods are difficult to standardize and control.[13]
