Artist's Description

The Cougar is a mammal also known as Mountain Lion, Panther and the scientific name is Puma ConColor ; a native to the Americas.

This large, solitary cat has the greatest range of any large wild terrestrial mammal in the Western Hemisphere, extending from Yukon in Canada to the southern Andes of South America.
Primary food sources include ungulates such as deer, elk, moose, and bighorn sheep, as well as domestic cattle, horses and sheep
Due to excessive hunting following the European colonization of the Americas and the continuing human development of cougar habitat, populations have dropped in most parts of its historical range. In particular, the cougar was extirpated in eastern North America in the beginning of the 20th century, except for an isolated sub-population in Florida..

Sadly the cowardly Sport of Cougar hunting continues to be practices in the USA. A bunch of men equipped with guns and dogs, track down the cougars, which are then chased up a tree by the dogs, whilst these cowards stand below with their guns and shoot him/her.

They do not care if this animal is male or female with cubs. More often than not the young cubs will die after the female has been cowardly shot.

By Nature the Cougar is a shy and solitary animal and try.s to avoid humans at all costs. There have only been 9 recorded fatalities in the USA since the early 1900. Cougars are not Man killers at all and it does not like human flesh in the slightest.

If it hunts, it hunts to eat and not for pleasure unlike the human specie.

Good Book to read is “Listening to Cougar” by Marc Bekoff

This Cougar was taken in a controlled environment at the WHF, Kent
