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.

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.

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

Exam of cougar linked to bicyclist's death shows no abnormalities

OLYMPIA A report by Washington State University (WSU) about the examination of the carcass of the cougar believed to be involved in the death of a bicyclist this spring near North Bend revealed no abnormalities that might have contributed to the animal's unusual behavior, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) said today.

The report by the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory at WSU in Pullman was released today in response to public disclosure requests. The report is available on WDFW's website at https://wdfw.wa.gov/news/attach/jul1618a.pdf.

Dr. Kristin Mansfield, WDFW wildlife veterinarian, said the examination produced no significant findings to indicate why the cougar attacked the bicyclist and a companion on May 19.

She said wildlife managers are "highly confident" that the cougar was involved in the incident, because it was found so close to the attack site and because of the relatively low density of cougars in Washington. However, WDFW is awaiting the results of DNA analysis to confirm that conclusion. Those results are expected within the next month, she said.

Mansfield said the cougar was estimated to be about 3 years old. The animal was lean, but its weight and body condition fall within a normal range for a cougar of its age. She said the examination found no indication of rabies or other diseases that would pose a risk to humans.
