MY WORST FEAR
No, it’s not the other kind of cougar I am afraid of! It’s the big cats that freak me out. I grew up in the Santa Monica Mountains in Los Angeles, and used to go hiking with my dad. I learned that whenever there were deer, there were big cats. After watching a few nature programs, i developed a real phobia.
Later when I got older, and did things that make one paranoid, I thought of mountain lions not cops.
One time, while walking my dog, I and my dog got spooked by something in the trees. It was probably a raccoon, but I got it into my head it was a cougar and called security, he in turn called animal control and the cops. This was all in a apartment building in Los Angeles. Not in the mountains. Guys with tranquilizer guns and long sticks with nooses hunting for my paranoid fantasy! CRAZY!!!*
