Most of us haven’t had the (mis?)fortune of seeing a cougar in real life. Maybe at the zoo, but even then they like to hide. These two wildlife officers in Utah come across one stuck in a bobcat trap, and they don’t have any tranquilizer darts handy to help them free it. So…they make do.
These guys are pretty brave in my book – that was not a risk-free procedure! But the cat is free and hopefully fine.
Seeing creatures up close like that (even on camera) always leaves me in awe at their design. Who can not be impressed by that beautiful creature? Plus, that cougar reminds me of a character in my next book… You’ll see!
