I don't know how true this story is, but I got it from my principal today. here is a photo of a cougar killed in steeleville, mo. the guy who shot it is 6 foot tall and weighs about 220 lbs. he was in a deer stand and saw the cat pass him downwind. he then saw it pass him upwind. when the cat passed him again (closer this time) downwind, he knew that it was hunting him. so, boom. after viewing this, do you still feel safe in the woods?
