    As reported on CBS news last evening at 6PM hunters is central Illinois had a game trail camara set scouting for deer. When they checked the camara they had pictures of a cougar on the trail. The footage was confirmed by the DNR. Interesting, makes a person want to take a hand gun in the deer woods this fall, has to be more than one cougar hunting the woods of Illinois.

    Cougars are plentifull here in Idaho. We have three roaming around in downtown Boise that the DNR cannot seem to locate right now. One should always carry a large cal handgun when going into the woods here. Normally they wont bother people but sure will your pets

    A few weeks ago they killed one well within in the city limits of Des Moines. It was shot a couple of blocks from a grade school during class. Tests proved it was a wild animal. They also took tongue samples to see what part of the country it came from.

    Probably came from here in Colorado.

    They like to come into the towns to eat stray house cats and yuppie Obama supporting joggers, but with the cooler weather, food gets scarce.

    When they travel, they don't use the Interstates, so you don't see them on the move.

    Interesting. I have been keeping track of reported animal sightings in the papers and on the news. Seems like they are moving South. I'm not sure just what that means, but global warming surely must be involved. Maybe the poles are going to shift and the North Pole will wind up around the Big Mac bridge.
