Without having to read thru 19 pages, did anybody hear why the cat was so emaciated?(wounded, sick, no teeth, anything definite)?

The information I heard was that it's wasn't very emaciated. It had a fairly good layer of fat.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

:yeah:

I heard the word "healthy" was used to describe it's condition. A 100-ish pound young male.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

I lived/worked in Port Angeles from 05 to 13, I lived out on West 12th street out by the end of the world. We had a lot of cougar seen around there. Some nice town BT bucks too.
Do you remember this story?

http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960527&slug=2331443


I remember that very well. My brother and a buddy and I were up at Lake Angeles for a few days of hiking and fishing. We came out of the woods to a Channel 5 news crew and cameras and mics in our faces asking about cougars. We were young and far more worried about our hair and Mom seeing us on TV in a cougar story, then actually seeing a cat. Crazy story for sure.

Bad Hunter!  Many cats don't make it after they leave mom because of this.  It is a tough road for Cat to become and adult.

You guys read about Jim Shockey and his camera man having a male lion try to attack them in Victoria, BC while hunting for bear?

easy to figure when predators are competing for dwindling food supply, they move to pets then people.

Or a combo of pets AND people.... whichever item places itself in the situation that a predator feels it can take advantage of for a meal. We should drop a bunch of these cats into seattle and Olympia and see how quick people want hound hunting back lol!

There are a lot of black bear in there too but they run away...most of the time.
Here is a video of Survival Science that was on before recreating a cougar attack on a bicyclist. Very interesting
