When I was in Yellowstone several years ago I couldn't believe some of the things I saw people do around wild and potentially dangerous animals. God looks after drunks and idiots.

while in Yellowstone, stopped by a buffalo jam, a lady got out of her car, caring a baby. I asked if she would like me to take a picture while she held the baby on the back of a buffalo? She asked if i thought she was stupid, my reply was i already know you are stupid, you have proved that, i'm just trying to find out if you are crazy too. she got real red and jumped back in her vehicle.
I used to vist Yellowstone regularly when I lived in Idaho. Once I saw a guy lying almost all the way on his back feeding a rockchuck sunflower seeds, while the chuck would climb up on his chest to take them. I wanted to tell him,"They're real playful, just grab his tail!", but I didn't.
Arent Cougars and Cyotes Kill on sight? heard something about a bounty for them somewhere.. ahah
The son of one of my wife's friends at work was lucky enough to get one of the tags for the limited Wolf hunt in Idaho last year. He took one with I believe a Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Mag. I saw a picture of him holding it after he had killed it. It was HUGE!!! You have no idea how big they really are until you see one up close or in context to the size of your average human.
That's a pretty good sized Cougar too.
This cat was stalking my buddy last Deer season. He shot it at less than 20 yards. If your in the woods your fair game. As far as cougar coming into your neighborhood, we have had cougar within 100 yards of the house in just the past few months. That said, even with my 3 year old daughter running around outside I worry much more about the 2 legged predators than any cougar.
If anyone is offended by this picture please just make believe the stiff Kitty is sleeping
Thats exactly what I thought and the reason never really felt a need to carry a sidearm in the woods. I figured if a Cougar was going to attack me I would never see it coming.I'm impressed he saw it stalking him... often the only time people would know a cougar was around was when it was nibbling on them like a chicken nugget.
