Looks just like the cat on my neighbor's wildlife motion detector camera. We are thrilled this big cat is our neighbor...and he is a very good neighbor.

Marvellous and enchanting. A friend and I were talking about how a cougar was seen about 45 minutes drive from where I live, which is unusual for this area. How fascinating.

I love all cats, big ans small, but cougars are my favourite because of their delicately drawn faces. Great photo.

Very cool picture. Surely they can do away with these huge collars and fine something smaller.
