Default Mountain lion, puma, cougar..

whatever you want to call them, do you think some are in Georgia?


I'm asking seriously because this morning, I had one walk by me in west Laurens county at about 20 yards and follow a fenceline for 70 yards or so. I watched it for 30-45 seconds, totally dumbfounded as to what I was watching.

I heard something coming in from behind me and to my right, I turned and saw it easing by me and it stopped straight to my right for several seconds. My first thought was "No ****ing way that's a cougar" but as it kept going and I saw how long and tan colored the body and how tall this thing was and the tail looked 3 foot long and black at the end, I knew what it had to be. It's head looked as big as volleyball.

My first instinct was to shoot it, but I was too afraid to move with it that close and I was still in shock.

Y'all can think I am lying, lost my mind or whatever, I don't care, I watched a cougar walk by me this morning in Laurens county GA.

Should've shot it but then you wouldn't be able to tell this story. I believe you though.

I saw one on the way to my mothers house one night at Lake Sinclair. Crossed the rd in front of me and stood on a little hill and looked back at me. My mother told me she had seen one a few weeks before And I said ok. LoL Then I saw this one and when I got to her house I walked in hugged her and said Mom I saw that panther. She said I told you there was one out here. She was right

I guess taking your phone out and recording it wasn't a option.

Lol!

I think Timmy's mind was still rowing to the bank on the River Jim Beam from the night before.

Lol!
