    Here's a game camera photo of the cat here a week ago Sunday at 4:50 AM between neibhgor Bob's house two doors down here in Rapid City SD.

    Looks like the other neighbor was up early - lights on. Neighbor Bob (a trapshooter) has his game camera on - my batteries died as I checked this afternoon.

    Hope this guy got some of the racoons that have been rasing hell on my deck.

    I have always like the pic of a guy who set up his camera and took a pic of himself and his elk. Once he got the film developed there in the back ground was a cougar looking at him from the brush. OS I'm sure.

    There was a pic on FaceBook with a house cat on the inside of a house in front of a sliding deck glass door. Outside there was the deck and snow with a cougar looking inside at the cat. The house cat was and the cooger were trying to smell each other through the glass. It was a great pic but I just couldn't find it for you all.

    If you mean this picture:

    It's a hoax and has been Photoshopped:

    That's a really old COUGAR on the deck. Either that or very sick. Looks like the whole back carriage is shot.

    I posted a link above to a very interesting article in our paper about these big cats. One of the interesting things it says is that the Black Hills are saturated with cougars.

    Here in Idaho the only good Mt. lion is a dead Mt. lion. Between them and wolves they pretty much wiped a lot of elk and dear herds out.

    Here's one of my son and a smaller cat ...

    Taken a couple of years ago at the cabin near Big Sky. This was a neighbor's pet bobcat, AND right after the photo was taken the cat took a swipe at my son and his glasses went flying across the room. HA! Sacred the devil out of Mike.

    I've seen in Western Kansas a couple of farm cats that were offspring of a chance mating of a bobcat and a domestic cat. Pretty cool looking, though I'm not sure I'd want to have one as a pet.

    Have you ever seen those Savannah cats? A crossbreed of a wild Serval cat and a domestic Siamese. Really cool looking. I think Flalagarto has one.

    MTA Tom that wasn't the pic but thats is a good one.

    Brian in Oregon, after seeing the pic of the cat alone I now wonder if the pic with the hunter and elk is real or not. Yes that is the pic that I saw. Its still a good pic if its a real pic or not. LOL

    TimB99, we had a cat in the early 70's that was 15 pounds and still growing at age 2. The vet thought it was a cross between a house cat and a bobcat. It was a great cat and good tempered.

    Howdy Y'all,

    They say that there aren't any in West"By God"Virginia,been extinct for years.....they say.I've personally seen two of 'em. The first was about the size of the cat in the first picture. No,that can't be possible they're extinct.I tracked the cat for about 1/2 mile in the snow.....until I realized he had started circling us.With a dying flashlight,and .22 hundgun things just didn't feel quite right,and we got the heck out of there.Now that I think about it I should have gone on after it.Why?,because they say they don't exist in W.Va..I was probably just tracking an old house cat that someone let out for the evening.My mistake.I guess I don't know shit from shinola........Just saying............
