That'll raise the hair on the back of your neck!  I've only seen one in the wild, heading away fast!  Even in lion country, they are hard to see!  As for the bunnies and hares, the hounds will usually bring them back around!
Life is far too serious to be taken that way!

Iím in northeastern Washington, getting the same snow every couple days, tons of tracks everyday but no rabbit in the bag yet, we went hiking through a bunny filled area with the dogs and they scattered quite a few snowshoes, it was right about 4pm which is when Iíve hunted it before but apparently Iím blind to them until the dog chases it out. Also ran into 2 young cougars! Really caught us off guard rounding the corner in the road and they were walking down the middle towards us!

Iíd love to see a cougar in Pennsylvania but thatís never gonna happen lol. Iím thinking the weather has affected rabbit movement here.

I was up at the Oyster Bar in Deadwood last weekend and ran into a cougar. Of course at my age, she was more of a saber tooth tiger. Nonetheless...
