Colorado House Cat Has Close Cougar Encounter

main coon, cougar meets cat, cat and cougar, cougar encounterA Boulder, Colorado house cat that goes by the name of Zeus got an up-close-and-personal look at a feline that's a bit higher up on the food chain in a strange cougar encounter.

According to the Denver Post, Gail Loveman was working in her home office when she heard a commotion on her front porch. Upon investigating, she spotted her 11-year-old Main coon cat standing face-to-face with a young tom cougar -- the unlikely duo were separated by a sliding glass door.

Loveman revealed to the Post that "(the cat) typically stands tall, hisses and acts fairly aggressive when he sees other animals - mostly squirrels, other house cats or even dogs - through the glass door. But Zeus remained calm as he appraised the big cat."

For the full account and additional images of encounter, make sure to visit the Denver Post.

Rick and Luke Jester killed this coyote at five yards when they were turkey hunting in southwest Georgia.
I called this big coyote in after 40 minutes of electronic distress calling. Saw him approach from 500 yards out till he was 50 yards from where I was set up. Shot the coyote with a 20-gauge deer slug from my slug rifle. The location was out near Victoria, Ill., and the date was Feb. 9, 2013.
