Ashton Kutcher Hangs With A Cow

Filed under: Ashton KutcherTwitterCow

We know Ashton is an animal friend, but we thought he had a thing for 'cougars', not cows. LOLz!

But he recently tweeted a photo of himself and a cow.

He wrote:

"Country Giving."

Ever since his Joe Paterno related twitter fiasco, his PR team has taken control of his social media life.

So don't expect anything much racier on his twitter than cows.

Though it is a pretty nice picture.

Filed under: CrazzzzyCougar

When cops responded to a landlord-tenant dispute they found a freezer full of frozen mangoes…

…and two dead parrots and a dead cougar!

The 73-year-old man said he didn't remember how the animal died.

The man has many wild and exotic animals on his property, including exotic birds, monkey, lemurs and cougars.

Why he was keeping dead ones in a freezer, no one knows.

What's with all the dead animal hoarding?

Some people are just plain weird.

Cougar Traveled 1,800 Miles (For Reasons Unknown)

Filed under: LionsCrazzzzy

Cougar Walked 1,100 Miles

It's being called the longest journey a mountain lion has ever taken in the United States!

A cougar killed in Milford, CT, six weeks ago traveled 1,100 miles from South Dakota to get to New England, Connecticut officials said Tuesday.

According to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, collected analyst data shows that the feline known in South Dakota known as the "St. Croix Cougar” journeyed from that state’s Black Hills, through Minnesota and Wisconsin (see attached map) and across the Midwest—likely southern Ontario, Canada— to Greenwich — and all the way to Milford!

Though the first confirmed sighting occurred in Minnesota, officials believe the mountain lion likely was born in South Dakota, meaning a total distance traveled of closer to 1,800 miles before he made it to Milford and was hit by an SUV.

If they make a Disney movie about him, they'll probs take that last part out.

Eastern Cougar Is Extinct

Easter Cougar Extinct

SO SAD!!!

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has declared the eastern cougar to be extinct.

This confirms a widely held belief among wildlife biologists that native populations of the big cat were wiped out by man a century ago.

After a lengthy review, federal officials concluded there are no breeding populations of cougars – also known as pumas, panthers, mountain lions and catamounts – in the eastern United States. Researchers believe the eastern cougar subspecies has probably been extinct since the 1930s.

The wildlife service said Wednesday it confirmed 108 sightings between 1900 and 2010, but that these animals either escaped or were released from captivity, or migrated from western states to the Midwest.

The biologist that led the study said:

"The Fish and Wildlife Service fully believes that some people have seen cougars, and that was an important part of the review that we did. We went on to evaluate where these animals would be coming from."

A breeding population of eastern cougars would almost certainly have left evidence of its existence, he said. Cats would have been hit by cars or caught in traps, left tracks in the snow or turned up on any of the hundreds of thousands of trail cameras that dot Eastern forests.

This declaration means the eastern cougar to be removed from the endangered species list, where it was placed in 1973.

What was called "ghost cat" is now just that.
